Best Value Night Out in London...

London has a lot to offer and one thing that has completely changed my life is dancing in Central London. At the risk of rubbishing other dances, I will just say that Modern Jive is one of the easiest things to get into. It's a two step dance, which means NO COUNTING! Hallelujah.

Ceroc is the platform that Modern Jive is taught from and it is a nationwide and even global brand that is spreading! This means that where ever you are in the UK there will be a dance night for you, particularly in London. With regular deals from Groupon and discounts on your first weeks of lessons AND a life time membership, it's certainly value for money.

Being able to dance is a fantastic gift, even if you only remember a couple of moves, you are sure to impress on the dance floor.

You don't need a partner, special shoes (although comfy ones are recommended), or clothes. Which means you can go to your nearest venue right after work as many people do. Now that it's summer it will get hot so bring a spare top or a towel if you need to. Top tip: deodorant and a breath mint are a winning combination.

It's also brilliant exercise for the mind, body and soul. Learning new moves and listening to the music improve brain function, the cardio and strengthening benefits are there as well, Plus with all the chatting in between tracks you're sure to make some new friends.

Check out for your nearest venue.


I've always found Ceroc is inclusive at all of its venues.

It's a lead and follow dance but everyone can dance with everyone.

Like Tango, where men are free to dance with men, and women to dance with women; practising leading and following is a great way to hone your skills.

There are all kinds of games to play on the dance floor, swapping leads mid dance, a third dancer stealing the lead or the follow of the dance, blind leading, blind following. Double trouble: two follows one lead. Regardless of your gender, learning to lead or follow is your choice.

  1. I totally agree. I always recommend to people who say they can't dance to try modern jive because everyone can dance, it might just take some people longer to learn, and they may only ever stay at a basic level. I think most people who go do get a bit addicted to it.

    Where do you dance in London? I'm debating trying to find somewhere on Friday 24th when I'm in London, but it doesn't look like there's much on centrally - I'm not sure how easy it would be to get back to my hotel late without doing taxi.
