Maxine:

I started Ceroc dancing in Reading United Kingdom 1992, and loved it ever since. I never thought of myself as a dancer but the beginners easy style must have been intended for people like me (two left feet). I think i´ve have progressed since then.

I still remember the first night when i started dancing Ceroc.... because of that i will always say to our new dancers that the hardest thing is coming through the door for the first time.

On the plus side you don't need a partner for modern jive, its a great social past time, danced to all sorts of music (my other passion) and it keeps you fit as well.

When we moved to Spain in 2004 oh no, no modern jive classes. so in 2005 we started Modern Jive Spain with Paso A Paso which means Step by Step.
My son Adam who was 16 at the time helped out by doing the meet and greet at the door on my dance nights. He soon progressed onto my dance floor and is now a wonderful patient teacher who loves Modern Jive as much as me and I´m pleased to say he takes all the classes so will keep the Modern Jive flag flying on the Costa Blanca. 

Adam now also teaches line dancing and basic salsa and loves dancing just as much as me. Hence why he's my favorite dance partner.
I have met some wonderful people through modern jive dancing and still making new friends.

 
Modern Jive is a dance style in its own right, and although it adapts moves from other dance styles like West Coast Swing, Salsa, Ballroom & Latin etc. a Modern Jive dancer would struggle dancing Modern Jive with dancers dancing these styles. Modern Jive has many variations and is continually evolving into different trends, styles and fashions, however the dancers from all these variants are still able to dance together. The key to understanding Modern Jive is the beginner moves, these 20-plus moves continually reinforce the ‘absolutes’ to the dance (the consistencies that allow modern jive dancers to dance together, despite their preferences).
