Do I need a partner?
No, you can come on your own, with friends or with a partner. The teaching method ensures that dance partners are rotated during the classes.
I've never danced with a partner before, and I've got 2 left feet !
Don't worry! Modern jive is like anything, you need to be taught before you can do it. When compared to other types of partner dance, modern jive is quick and easy to learn. There is no complicated footwork and don't forget our crew will answer any questions, dance with you and ensure that you're completely happy.
Who will I dance with?
The culture at modern jive venues is that everybody asks everybody to dance.
What type of music is played during the night?
Various tracks are played from the 40s up to present day chart music. All musical tastes are catered for and we try to please everyone.
Is there a minimum or maximum age
The minimum age is sixteen providing the guest is accompanied by a responsible member of Dance Dedication. Unaccompanied guests would be required to be over 18. There is no upper age limit.
What do people wear?
As for clothes, anything goes. Come casual or dress up, which ever makes you feel comfortable. As for shoes we recommend you avoid trainers and wear something with a smooth sole.
What about drinks
At our Dover venue we provide free squash and jugged water, if you would prefer something stronger your most welcome to bring your own drinks.
