Modern Jive in Zurich

Hi All

I'm new to Zurich and looking to get back into dancing. I've been dancing and teaching Modern Jive (Ceroc, Le Jive etc) for years and would be interested in starting classes here in Zurich; if there's sufficient interest and suitable venues in the centre (dance school, nightclub).

If you're interested post to this thread or PM me so I can gauge interest and we'll see if we can get something started.

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

we would be interested in ceroc, we used to attend a ceroc group in the uk before moving here. we have looked for one here without any success, we can only find a course of 4 lessons for 80chf, which is not how the ceroc group that we attended in england was run.

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

I'd definitely be interested if it was a weekday evening.

I'd be an absolute beginner in Jive. I love dancing though and I've done a little ballroom before.

Hi vicladyuk lux_interior et al

Great to see some interest already.

This place could be a possible venue: http://www.silbando.ch/

They already hold Tango, Lindyhop and Salsa classes there so modern jive could complete the set ! They seem to have nothing on Tuesday evenings so I'll have to check them out.

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

I am also interested.
I have done some East Coast swing before, and have done a couple of lindy crash courses.

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

Hi there,

I would be interested. I have been dancing for years (Latin American, Ballroom, Disco, rock n Roll etc) and used to teach too, but I have never done any Ceroc or Le Jive, so always interested in learning new styles!

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

Hi Joe,

I would definitely be interested in Modern Jive and that place is just around the corner from where I work - so would be ideal!!

I did Midern Jive for a couple of years in the UK, before I got into West Coast Swing, but I haven't seen much of that here either.

I just hope my dance shoes arrive in Zurich before you get started!

Good Luck!

Jenny

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

What would be required to open a Ceroc/LeRock/LeJive/whatever franchise in Switzerland?

Did anyone try Discofox? Google/Wikipedia seem to think it's the closest equivalent in CH, but I've never tried it.

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

Hi, I would also be greatly interested in Ceroc (or Modern Jive) here in Zürich. This t=is the thing I miss most about New Zealand, where I was frequently at "Lorne Street Ceroc" during my studies.

Is there anything coming up? I read in an earlier post that there where some beginners classes offered here (4 times for 80 CHF). Is that still on? I'd be interested to refresh and my wife could learn the basics...

Cheers,
Raimund

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

There's a Rock 'n' Roll dance club called Long Tall Ernie in Zurich Seefeld (behind Tiffins). The website's in German but it seems they are quite active. Lots looking for dance partners. If anyone knows this club, do let us know more

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

There's a busy crowd here on Saturday evenings, and through the week.

Google Zurich Swing / Jive / Dance and you'll get lots of leads.

Brilliant. Your google skills sure exceed mine, I had not found quite what I was after so far! I'll make sure to try it as soon as I'm in Zurich (I'll be moving soon)

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

Reviving an old thread just to point out this event:
Dancing night - LeRoc and other dance styles

If you are interested, register for the event or send me a PM!

It's time to get a few Leroc/Ceroc/modern jive dancers together!

Re: Modern Jive in Zurich

Finally after searching for many years I met someone who has started up a Leroc/Ceroc/Modern Jive dance class in Zurich. Currently we meet once a week in Oerlikon (GZ Oerlikon, Gubelstr. 10) on a Thursday night at 8pm for the 1 hour class and then move on to a club in the centre for more freestyle dancing. At the moment the classes are free...
