πŸ„Our newly formed U3A Modern Jive Group is a joint venture with Gravesend U3A. A great way to meet people, have fun & keep fit in a relaxed atmosphere whilst learning to dance. Modern Jive is much slower to dance that traditional Jive & has the distinct advantage of minimal footwork. We are fortunate to have an experienced couple, Alan and Lynne, who have agreed to get the dancing started & coach the group on a regular basis. The 1st meeting will be on Wednesday 3rd July 2019 - 7pm with dancing from 7.30pm - 9.30pm. The venue is The Ascot Arms, Central Road, Gravesend, DA12 5AW (just off Singlewell Road). Free parking is available & each session will cost approx Β£3 per person. No experience is necessary & it is the ideal style of dance for men or women with two left or even two right feet...... by Christmas you will be amazing family & friends with all your new moves. Individual dancers or couples very welcome; please come along & give it a try. We are sure you’ll all be pleasantly surprised at how much fun you will have! There will be a sign up sheet at the June monthly meeting or you can email Edina Geering the Meopham group contact to register your interest.

πŸ„Due to our increasing success, several groups appear to have reached capacity (shaded grey on the GROUPS page list)! If you are interested in a group which appears to be 'full' it is important to let Heather Wright & the group contact know so that we can take steps to address the problem!
