Go ahead, try something new!

 Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • LEROC is a fusion of jive and latin dance styles, great fun and easy to learn. LEROC - aka 'modern jive' - is one of the most popular forms of partner dancing in the UK today. More than just a dance class, it's a great social night out too! Check out a brief video of LEROC dancing

  • You can if you wish, but it's not necessary because the classes are organised in such a way that you'll practice with many different partners throughout the evening. Come on your own / bring a partner / group of friends, it doesn't matter.

  • It's generally advisable to wear shoes with a non-grippy sole that allow you to turn, spin and move around easily on the dance floor. Also light clothing which allows you to move freely and keep cool. If you really work up a sweat you might want a spare top / deodorant.

  • No. LEROC isn't run as a course, so there's no booking or enrolling to be done. You simply turn up, ready for 8pm. Every week a number of complete beginners turn up, hence we always run a beginners class.

  • A midweek class night is either £6.00 or £7.00 (depending on venue) for the whole session, which includes the beginner class, the intermediate class (or beginners coaching session) and dance practice time (the 'freestyle' session). With all the fun - and the social and health benefits thrown in - we think think this is a great value night out!

  • Complete beginners, people with two left feet, in fact practically anyone aged 18 or over who's reasonably fit can attend a LEROC night. If you're unsure about your fitness please consult your GP.

  • The music played on a LEROC night is an uplifting selection covering many different musical genres, including Modern Pop, Rock, Latin, Disco, Soul, Swing, and Rock & Roll.

  • At present we do not require you to become a member.

Format of a LEROC class night
7.45pm
‑8pm
Arrive, chat - get a drink and get ready
8pm
‑8.40pm
Beginners class. Get up, join in and learn 3 or 4 easy moves. Don't forget there'll be other complete beginners in the same class so you won't be on your own!
8.40pm
‑9pm
Break. Practise those moves you've just learnt while the DJ spins a few tunes.
9pm
‑9.40pm
Beginner's practise session. A team of friendly LEROC coaches is usually on hand for a brief recap of the moves you've just learnt.
Intermediate class. After you've done 6 beginner classes you can progress to some more exciting and interesting moves.
9.40pm
‑11pm
Freestyle. Lights down, music up, and hit the floor for over an hour of practise / social dancing. This is where the real fun happens, so get up and have a go!
