How Does it Work?

The Freestyle Jive class is 90 minutes long and teaches moves in a mini routine format.

Each week we teach a series of moves that are linked into a short routine, and then over the month we link these moves into longer routines. Then we have some proper "Freestyle" time where you get to try your hand at dancing anything and everything you know in whatever order you like.  Over time you will develop the skills and confidence to change the order and structure of these routines until you're truly dancing freestyle.

The music is paced slowly to enable the steps to be learned and sequenced together during the lesson.  The style of the dance is to interact with your partner in a smooth fashion, dancing on the beat together. You are using simplified footwork and a greater emphasis on teamwork, music and enjoying the dance.
