Hopefully you’ve arrived here because you’re either new to modern jive dance and want to find out more about it.  Or you’ve been dancing a while and have got sucked in to the obsession with dance.  Either way, I hope you find What about dance an interesting and useful community.

Across the blog modern jive and Ceroc dancing are used interchangeably, both meaning the same dance style.  Ceroc is merely a brand name for an international modern jive organisation, while independents use the term modern jive. I also refer to other dance genres on occasion, because there’s more out there to reference, many people dance more than one style and we can all learn from different styles of dance.
