Lorraine & I have been teaching at our own club for over 13 years and have been dancing Modern Jive for over 16 years. Ken has been a qualified Le Roc Modern Jive teacher since 2003 and a Member of the Le Roc Federation and UKA from that date. This is the only nationally recognised qualification for Le Roc Modern Jive. We have also taught at the First Smoove weekender on the IOW in September 2015.
In October 2013 Lorraine & Ken participated in a teachers training course to learn more about teaching "Next Generation Smooth Jive" This is a evolution of Modern Jive which maintains the spirit of a simple "Entry Level" dance style accessible to all, but is highly focused on teaching safely in the uniquely social environment of Modern Jive.
Learning how to build trust on the dance floor by teaching a style that offers consistency and flow to create a simple and harmonious partner dance experience, but also how to deliver a class to a mixed group of abilities, intelligence and personality types.
