What we're about

Covid-19 and all that jive

Modern Jive Vancouver encourages personal responsibility and is not liable for events organized by third parties. Please take the pandemic seriously: mask up, sanitize your hands, don't switch partners, and whatever you do: do NOT come to events if you feel sick, have any symptoms, or have been exposed to anyone with symptoms of Covid-19.

Modern Jive is for people who never danced before, and for people who love music and dancing. We are a friendly and inclusive group of dancers whose sole purpose is to promote dancing in a relaxed and safe environment.

Easy to learn, yet impressive to watch. All ages welcome, NO Partners required. NO dance experience required. Everyone dances with everyone else.

Instant dancing: From 0 to dancing in 30 minutes !!!! It's mixture of Swing, Latin, and standard Ballroom; relaxed, casual, informal, sociable, lively music (top-40 music, 1920's to present day), and versatile (can dance to many, different music: soft-rock, jive, tango, swing, cha-cha, even salsa, Merengue and Bachata, etc).

Modern Jive is a dance style in its own right, and although it adapts moves from other dance styles like West Coast Swing, Salsa, Ballroom & Latin etc. a Modern Jive dancer would struggle dancing Modern Jive with dancers dancing these styles. Modern Jive has many variations and is continually evolving into different trends, styles and fashions, however the dancers from all these variants are still able to dance together. The key to understanding Modern Jive is the beginner moves, these 20-plus moves continually reinforce the ‘absolutes’ to the dance (the consistencies that allow modern jive dancers to dance together, despite their preferences). - Wikipedia http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/
