"Format of a Ceroc evening"
With the exception of party nights, all Ceroc classes in the world follow the same format:
COMPLETE BEGINNER'S CLASS
Every night without fail there will be a good number of complete beginners. Therefore we hold a 45 minute class where you will learn 4 of the easier moves. After which there will be two or three records (freestyle) where you can practice the routine.
When you feel comfortable with the beginner's class, you can move up to the next class where you will learn 4 or 5 harder moves.
It usually takes about 5 or 6 beginner's classes to master the basic moves. If you're impatient and you want to progress quicker, we do host 4-hour workshops on Sundays, after which you would be able to move up to the Intermediate classes.
Freestyle After the 30 minute Intermediate class, your night out really starts when the DJ takes command of the freestyle session. This is an hour and a half of pure interrupted dance where you can improve your CEROC style and soak up the atmosphere. it's addictive.
Most CEROC venues have experienced dancers on hand that are part of the crew and are specifically there to dance with beginners.
Taxi dancers should be easy to spot as they where distinctive T-shirts, and are on duty until they remove their T-shirt. Please feel free to ask a taxi dancer for a dance if they don't get to you first.
BEGINNER'S REFRESHER CLASS
Some venues, depending on the layout of the venue, offer a mini beginner's class during the Intermediate class. The taxi dancers teach these smaller classes.
Ashtons and Watford offer these classes and are therefore ideal for beginners.
If you're a BEGINNER, and you want to learn really quickly, we host 4 hour workshops. These are designed for complete beginners and are held on Sundays. Places are limited to 20 people and therefore you must book a place in advance. No need to book with a partner, Call, email or ask any of the crew for more details or an application form.
