LINDA - One evening, I was watching our local television channel, and noticed Modern Jive being danced. I thought yes! This was what we could to do.
A few weeks later we noticed an advertisement to learn to dance Le Roc at the Dance Easy School of Dance in Folkestone. We went along, John was very apprehensive, as he had never danced in his life. This was where we met our special friends and teachers Lilly & Roland.
We danced at Folkestone for a Year. This gave us wonderful grounding, as we had to learn footwork and hand holds in great detail.

JOHN - In 1997 Linda persuaded me to try le Roc Modern Jive in Folkestone. At first I took to it like trying to fly without wings! In a word I was totally useless. However, I was persuaded by Linda to keep it up and eventually it all clicked. The benefits to joints, heart, lung waistline and brain were soon realised.

LINDA & JOHN - After a year, the Folkestone Le Roc classes closed, and we decided that we shouldn't waste what we had learnt, so we looked around for another group to join.
We found Canterbury Le Roc, where we danced for a couple of years before we set up our own Modern Jive events.

 

LINDA - For many years I have also been learning Ballroom & Latin American, Argentine Tango & Sequence dancing. I am working my way through dance exams and have competed in a few amateur competitions around the UK and a several times in the ISTD Ballroom & Latin American Finals in Blackpool

LINDA- In January 2017 we decided we'd like to expand the range of dances we organise. We have been DJing at various Argentine Tango events for many years and started running our own Argentine Tango events in 2016. We have been DJing at Ballroom & Latin American, Argentine Tango & Sequence social dances in East Kent for over ten years and have now decided to offer these at our Canterbury venue. It gives us a lot of pleasure to bring something to our area for fellow dancers who perhaps don't like to travel too far.

LINDA & JOHN - Dancing has changed our lives!

We just hope we can carry on dancing forever!
