Level 2 Jive can be taken as soon as you are ready and we will encourage you to have taste of Level 2 when appropriate.  The content is more stretching so that you can continue to improve your dancing and develop a wide dance vocabulary.  If you have past dance experience and think that you are ready to try this class then contact us. 
Level 2 classes cost £8 per week and this price allows you to attend the whole evening from 7.45 to 10.15.

A Touch of Swing
Many of our students want to learn a little bit of swing dancing to extend the range of tempos that they can dance to and to have a wide range of rhythms that they can dance.  For 2020 we are offering these short sessions for Level 2 dancers.  We will introduce triple-time and double-time variations and a few tasters of other swing dance styles, all related to the core Jive class. These sessions are covered by the £8 standard price.
