  • "Ceroc is much easier than it looks. The step-by-step instructions during the class have you doing moves you never thought you'd be doing. It's so much fun and the people are great. I'm having the time of my life” – Rose

  • "I think the Ceroc & Modern Jive Dance Company provides a fun and friendly atmosphere to learn dancing. The beginner classes are great, allowing people who never thought they could dance (me!) to feel as if they can, and that they can improve too.” – Tracey

  • "Modern Jive's greatest strength is the teaching method which allows people with no dance experience to start dancing. Dancing is a huge part of my life now and I am sure I would not be doing any sort of dance if I had not started out with Modern Jive." – Paul

  • "I wish I had started dancing ten years earlier! Dancing makes me happy - Ceroc is the best thing in life, the best thing I have ever been involved in. Over the last ten years I've made friends with so many people - it's the best thing ever! Love it, Love it, LOVE it! - Dennis
