Gary MarsdenFounded by Gary Marsden, Riviera LeRoc uses fully qualified UKA Approved teachers, so you get expert advice and great value from your modern jive dancelessons.

Every evening lesson is highly suitable for beginners, because the routine assumes no previous knowledge, and does not 'follow on' from the previous week.

Riviera LeRoc DancersPlus, you only pay each night that you attend; dancers do not have to pay for a series of lessons in advance
