July Salsa Freestyle Party

At the Plough Inn - Stoke Lacy HR7 4HG

14th July 2023

We had a little Rueda, line-ups and a couple of dance games.

The spin challenge proved a lot harder than expected. The lady needs to give the man a decent push. The man needs to be strong as an ox in the arm and light on their feet.

Bordering on impossible, but fabulous fun and lets you attempt novel moves.

Dance to the beat - precisely on the beat. Not essential at all times but nice to have a go.

How Max Jive came about

Jive partner dancing

For a laugh we had a go at role reversal. I can’t follow, she can’t lead. It took as an age to get the basic moves right with her leading instead of me. It was comical. It would have been easier of at least one of was accustomed to the other role.

Then Laura gave me an idea ...

What if we could share the lead! Swap halfway though. All I need to do is test it.

And so we did. It made dancing far more fun. We danced twice as much as everyone else. We would also dance to longer tracks because lead sharing made that more doable. (You try a six minute song - you can run out of moves)

I realised something else too. To get her to dance, to really dance, I need to up my game. I need to show her what dancing is all about.

For that I need music, loud music. Music we both liked. I put the headphones on her head, pressed play on my phone and the magic began. She went loopy, dancing like a maniac. This is the Max Jive experience. It led her to say that she felt euphoric.

Jive partner dancing

The right music, a beer or two and a great partner are the essential ingredients for a real good time. I want to share this joy with you. For me it has been one of the best things in my life. You can then go to a concert, a wedding, a disco, a nightclub, a dance hall, a country fair and dance like mad. Or take it steady. Or just use it as a way to get exercise that beats the gym. Whether it is with a stranger or your partner we can help you dance as one.
