About Us

About the Club

Mottram Jive was set up in 2003 by a group of enthusiasts, who with their friends wanted to rescue the venue and continue dancing. Since then our membership has steadily increased and the club has become a popular weekly venue holding regular classes and special events. Although we are a club, non-members are always made welcome.

Not Tried Modern Jive Yet?

Modern jive is easy to learn and fun to do. It’s a partner dance that looks extremely stylish and can be danced almost anywhere. We play all genres of music including the classics of Rock & Roll, Swing Latin and Blues. During the lessons we change partners every few minutes, and before long you will get to meet everyone.  Anyone can learn and our members and Taxi Dancers are always ready to help and encourage you. It’s a great way to socialise and also keep fit.

 

Regular Dancer??

Our aim at Mottram jive is to create an atmosphere where people who enjoy dancing can meet and have fun. The club is run for dancers by an elected and dedicated committee of dancers. The emphasis is on social dancing with plenty of time for freestyle. Our dancing and lessons are led by a variety of experienced, qualified Instructors and Professional DJ’s, giving a fresh feel to each evening.

As well as our weekly sessions, throughout the year we run a number of special events with fun lessons.

* To ensure that the Club is as sociable as possible, the general principle is that you can ask anyone to dance and they’ll always say yes – which means that you’ll be asked to dance too, so simply say yes! For ladies and gentlemen alike though, we simply ask that you conform to the rules of good behaviour and respect for your dance partner,

* Like Mottram Jive Club, Mottram Village Hall is run by volunteers, and they need to generate income, so please buy your drinks from the bar! For this reason, we ask you not to bring your own drinks with you.

* If you have any ideas or comments about Mottram Jive Club, please fill in a Suggestions Form and put it in our Suggestions Box (at the entry desk) – or send us an e-mail!

* Jiving is hot work, so make sure you stay fresh and fragrant throughout the evening! To help you stay scented and sweet-smelling, we provide deodorants in both the Gents’ and Ladies’ cloakrooms.
