Bringing you fun and friendly LeRoc Modern Jive Classes and Events....
About Modern Jive
LeRoc Modern Jive is a fun modern partner dance that can be danced to all styles of music – and it's great for getting in shape and increasing your fitness levels!
Modern Jive originates from French Jive and has evolved into an easy to learn, versatile fusion of Jive and Latin American dances. LeRoc has been danced in the UK in it's current form since the early eighties, and unlike some fitness crazes that come and go, it is definitely here to stay!
If you haven’t tried Modern Jive before, we assure you that learning Modern Jive is about having fun and meeting friendly new faces – as well as learning to dance! It's a very social evening, and unlike other partner dances, you don't need to bring along your own partner - and those of you with two left feet are especially welcome! So, no need to feel nervous......
We pride ourselves on creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and for new dancers our professional teaching methods almost guarantee you will be dancing by the end of your first lesson – probably to some of your favourite music!
Carolyn and Ade are the Principal Instructors and Founders of Vision LeRoc.
They always have time for a dance and are friendly and approachable. So if you’re struggling with a new move or want to know more about Modern Jive, just ask away...
Both Carolyn and Ade are Professional UKA Modern Jive Instructors (qualified by exam), members of the United Kingdom Alliance of Teachers of Dance (UKA) and affiliated by the LeRoc Federation.
This means we always have not one, but two professional instructors on hand at our class nights.... right through to the end of the dance night! Vision LeRoc only uses professional LeRoc Modern Jive Instructors to ensure a consistent, high standard of instruction.

Health Benefits - reasons to Put on Your Dancing Shoes!
Experts recommend 60 minutes of exercise each day, and dancing can be a heart-healthy aerobic workout. If you pick up the pace, you can burn as many calories as walking, swimming or riding a bicycle. And it's certainly more fun than a gruelling session at the gym or a full-on, hour-long aerobics session!
Treadmills and exercise bikes are great ways to get in shape, but your body can quickly get used to the technique—meaning you begin to see fewer results over time. Dancing, however, is multi-directional and forces your muscles to move in new ways.
We have all seen numerous fitness crazes come and go but LeRoc has been danced in the UK in it's current form since the early eighties.... It's definitely here to stay..... and undoubtedly more fun!
So come along, have a great night out, meet new friends, and ........exercise the fun way!
