New? Start here

Hi and welcome to What about Dance

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

Across the blog modern jive and Ceroc are used interchangeably, both meaning the same dance style.  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.
