What is LeRoc?

LeRoc Jive, as seen on TV, is sweeping the country. It's a mixture of Dirty Dancing, Rock'n'Roll, Salsa, Blues, West Coast Swing, Latin, Strictly Come Dancing and French Jive. LeRoc jive classes are fun and friendly and there is no complicated footwork to master. You'll be amazed at what you can do after only a few short weeks. LeRoc can be danced to almost any type of music. It's a dance for any occasion and it looks brilliant whether you are a complete beginner or an expert.

What do I wear?
Dress in anything comfortable, there is no dress code. But remember Jiving is an aerobic exercise, so do not wear anything too warm or constricting.

What happens on the night?
The night starts with a beginners class. This teaches you three or four basic moves. The moves changes every week, so it is not like starting a course as there is no "beginning" or "end". If you miss out a week, you just continue the next week. The next part is a FREESTYLE session. This is your chance to relax with a drink, socialise or practice what you have learned. The third part of the evening is an Intermediate Class, which is slightly longer and covers more complicated moves. This class is designed for people who have mastered some of the basic moves. At Dorking venues there is a Consolidation Beginners class running at the same time for beginners only. The evening ends with a longer FREESTYLE session, so do not leave during the Intermediate Class. Freestyle is what really counts. Getting good at the dance is about confidence and experimentation. Once you have learned a few moves you can mix and match them to dance however the music takes you.

Do I need a partner?
No. Most people come by themselves or with friends, but if you have a partner bring them along.

Will I get fit and have lots of FUN?
Most people will say they get fitter more through dancing than any aerobic session and FUN, well of course!

When can I start?
Beginners can join at any time, as the first class is always the Beginners class.
