What we do

To give you a taste of this group which started just before Christmas and grew to over 20, here is a collection of comments from group members:

“The Jive group has been great fun. Everyone has happily danced with each other and we have managed to create a happy blend of joyous spontaneous dance and sharing and learning new moves. jive groupJiving is great exercise for body and mind, the music makes us feel young/alive and hopefully we’ll learn how to really ‘swing’ with new steps and moves.”

"Jive generally seems to be making a comeback and there are quite a few opportunities for people to go and dance, so it's good to refresh the steps, learn some new ones and make new friends. We've enjoyed the music and the social side. It’s good exercise, great fun, really groovy, dead cool - a chance to grow old ‘disgracefully’. Rock on!  I absolutely love it!"

The group may run over the summer if enough jivers are available. We plan to go to rock ’n’ roll gigs together and show off our talents before resuming en masse on October.

Reports

Autumn 2018

The first session will be 3 October at the Castle Street Centre.

May 2018

This group does not operate in the summer. It will restart in September.

November 2017

Fellside Centre Hall is an atmospheric place to dance in; the dark evenings make jive sessions feel a bit like parties, very sociable. Our tea breaks in the kitchen (log burner) sometimes turn into discussion groups. 

If you like dancing, come and join us – we all jive different styles and learn from each other. It’s great exercise!
