Modern jive, ceroc and Jive Motion
Modern jive (also known as ceroc) is a sexy blend of salsa and swing, but incorporates elements from many other dance styles, such as tango and rock'n'roll. It is the easiest partner dance to learn, with no complicated footwork, and you can dance modern jive to almost any kind of music, from pop to latino, club, swing, blues: anything that is good and has a good beat!
Modern jive is extremely popular in English-speaking countries, such as England, Australia, New Zealand, and also in Europe. In the UK, more than 50,000 people dance with one modern jive organisation each week, and in Sydney, Australia, more than 2,000.
