This original and professional instructional DVD is designed, performed and presented by Nicky Haslam, Founder of Ceroc Modern Jive dancing in Australia and 5 times Australasian Advanced Ceroc Modern Jive Champion and Robert Winter, also Australasian Advanced Ceroc Modern Jive Champion.

Nicky & Robert travel extensively across Australia, NZ and the UK teaching and performing their unique brand of Australian Ceroc and are also well renowned Show Choreographers. Together they were the First UK Jive Masters Champions. Nicky first brought the Ceroc style of Modern Jive dance to Australia in 1991.

Ceroc is a fusion of many styles of dance including Latin, Salsa, Jive and others. Fun and easy to learn, Ceroc is best described as a "free-form partner dance" which has eliminated or simplified much of the complex footwork of partner dance.

By learning Ceroc you will be able to dance in nightclubs, at parties or wherever music is playing, as it can be performed to all popular modern music, e.g. chart hits, blues, swing, techno and most Latin music.
