-Beginners / Improvers Swing Jive Dance Classes

Social Jive classes are taking Irelands dancefloors by storm ! East Coast Swing Jive which is made up of both Single or Triple Step styles is a social partner dance made up of 4, 6 or 8 beat patterns. Swing Jive is the easiest of the partner dances to master and most people can pick up and move to figures even in their first class as the footwork to the figures for both leader and follower are easy to get, hence it is easier to learn. Dancing to Swing, Irish Country & Rock N’Roll Music  this class is suitable for both Beginner & those who want to learn more steps, improve their footwork and rhythm counts.

Two left feet ? No problem ! Over the duration of the courses, you will learn  leader and follower steps in each figure which are broken down so that you will learn the steps to dance in a fun and friendly environment. With course progression you will learn at dance classes cork beginner and advanced figures in a way that can be naturally linked together using  ballroom dance and jive (swing, country and rock n’roll) rhythms.
