Modern Jive Dancing Group,

Hi Everyone,

Meopham U3A contacts are Alan Scott or Edina Geering.

This group is a joint venture with Gravesend U3A.
Come along to our  U3A Modern Jive Beginners group. It’s a great way to meet people, have fun and keep fit in a relaxed atmosphere all whilst learning to dance. Modern Jive is much slower to dance that traditional Jive and has the distinct advantage of minimal footwork.

Always space for new beginners.

Coached by Lynne and Alan Scott who was a Ceroc Coach at Istead Rise for 14 years


Christ Church Hall, Old Road East, Gravesend, DA12 1NR,
 Every Monday except Bank Holidays --  7.30pm - 9.30pm --- £2.00

We walk through 3 or 4 easy beginners moves then dancing them to slow music, followed by a freestyle session.

See you on the dance floor.

Alan & Lynne Scott

Thank you so much for a very enjoyable evening. What a turnout!  Although most of us went wrong at some point, it was still fun and we had a good laugh. 

Unfortunately, with old age comes very short memory!  It’s a brilliant idea to change partners all the time.  What I enjoyed most, and really thank you both so much, for kindly dancing with everyone.  I can’t believe that I jived for the first time ever! 
Regrettably, I will be on holiday for the next session, but look forward to the one after that.

I am really sorry I won’t be able to come this coming week as I am away on holiday.  I had such a good time at our first lesson.  I can’t wait for my next lesson and look forward to it.  Please don’t think I won’t return, I am hooked! 

Those movers and shakers among us were looking forward to shimming around the dance floor.  We were not disappointed.

There were approximately over 40 people from both Gravesend & Northfleet U3A and Meopham U3A.  As we all signed in we were given a name badge which we discovered was a great way to get to know each other.

Alan proceeded to explain exactly how the evening would be structured.  We then were shown the four moves that we were going to learn that night.  Alan said that we should remember to relax and smile.  This was not as easy as it sounds as we were so busy trying to remember the moves.  Gradually we were getting the hang of it and Saturday Night Fever came to mind!

It was a very good evening, well organized and very enjoyable.

Well done to both Alan and Lynne Scott.

Strictly here we come!

Just to say thank you so very much for a wonderful evening of Modern Jive, I had such a great time.

Thank you for the notification of the change to Monday and I hope to be there.  I know I was hopeless, but I did enjoy the last evening!  Thank you. 

Thank you both for a really enjoyable evening.  Well organised.
We are going to practice honest!
