Summer 2013
I am doing lots of dancing in lots of styles, so not finding quite so much time to report on what's happening in the Ceroc/LeRoc/Modern Jive world.

One of the biggest challenges at the moment appears to be the recession.  I have spoken to a lot of club organisers lately and many of them are reporting lower numbers of dancers at their regular weekly sessions.  Numbers often drop in the summer, but this year seems to be worse than ever.  If you love your Modern Jive please try to get out dancing as often as you can and support the wonderful people who run the dance clubs.  They need you to keep going.  It would be a shame if you went back in a few months and found that they had had to close down due to lack of support!

I have updated the holidays page again - there are new events in New Zealand, Wales and lots of other places.  Have a look at the list and plan your next session of great dancing!

I will be starting on the 2014 list of weekenders, holidays and competitions soon - please let me know if you know of any planned events for 2014.

  Happy dancing,
