Ceroc dancers from all over New Zealand are set to dance their socks off during the third annual Summer Ceroc Weekender, starting at the Suburban Club in Nelson on February 6.
Ceroc Dance is done to modern music and incorporates elements of other dance styles including salsa, swing, rock'n'roll, jazz and funk.
It originated in the United Kingdom and was brought to New Zealand more than 20 years ago.
Ceroc Dance Nelson instructor Ben Kolff said the style of dance is easy to learn, making Ceroc lessons fun.
This year's annual festival is particularly special, because Australasia's best modern jive couple, Holly Skinner and Coby Chapple, will teach three workshops and take a number of private lessons.
At a dance party on Saturday night, at the Suburban Club, the pair will also give a debut performance of the new routine they have just finished choreographing.
New Zealand national champions, Vanroe Stone and Naomi Hall, who taught at the festival last year, are returning to teach a workshop and give demonstrations as well.
The weekend is made up of three socials at the Suburban Club, Tahunanui Drive, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and a performance at the Nelson Market on Saturday at 11am. Four workshops, which run for an hour-and-a-half will be held at the Suburban Club, Tahunanui Dr, on Saturday and Sunday.
