Modern Jive originated in France in the late 1940's and has been evolving ever since! It is a mix of various dance styles including Salsa, Latin, Rock & Roll, Ballroom and Tango as well as most recently, West Coast Swing. Modern Jive is the ultimate in partner dancing, performed to everything from your favourite Top 40 hits to the old classics. With a basic 4 count rhythm, Modern Jive is one of the easiest forms of partner dancing to learn. You can stay with the basics or progress through the levels. It's up to you! One thing is for sure that this style of dancing will have you confidently dancing in no time.  


Club Jive Dance Company was established in 2001 and introduced Modern Jive to the Hunter region. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength teaching students from all over Australia.  

Under the direction of Rachel Davis & Laurie Fawkner, their vision for Club Jive is to build the dance community by providing a fun, safe and social dance family for all to enjoy.
