Our workshops are designed to help you develop your dance skills in a small group where you can get individual tuition and have more time to ask questions and to practise.
Our workshops cover lots of different aspects of Modern Jive from the fundamentals for complete beginners, right through to advanced moves, musicality and dips and drops.
Workshops are usually held during the day at weekends and they include refreshments and time to practise what you have learned. They are always tailored to the individuals who attend and are never the same twice so you can attend as many times as you like!
We do require you to book in advance for our workshops so that we can ensure even numbers of leads and follows. You can do this on this page when we have a workshop happening soon, or at our Monday night classes in Keynsham.
