About Riviera LeRoc

Founded in 2000 by Gary Marsden, Riviera LeRoc began life on the English Riviera in Paignton.

In January 2001 we moved to our current home at The Lawns Social Club in Taunton, where we continue to hold weekly classes, monthly freestyles and our famous “Wiggle Wednesday”. Riviera LeRoc is a member of the LeRoc Federation, and as such our teachers are professionally qualified UKA Approved Teachers, so you get expert advice and great value from us.

With a growing reputation, for playing some of the best tracks within the Southwest, our music can range from the latest charts and modern funk to sultry blues and old-style swing. Throughout the evening the music is designed for our type of dancing, which will enable you to learn the moves and help you express your own style.

You can come with a partner if you wish, but our classes are designed in such a way that you’ll dance with different partners to get you dancing as quickly as possible.

Yes, we will ask you to register mainly for insurance purposes, but also to join our class loyalty system. After 10 lessons you get one free.

Comfortable light weight clothing, and non-grip shoes to allow you to turn, and move across the dance floor. It can get sweaty dancing so you might want to bring a small towel / spare top / deodorant.
