Modern Jive is a funky fusion of Latin, Jive and Salsa - so what better place to learn about this popular dance trend than at Fusion Festival 2008.

Held at Cotton Tree Park, Maroochydore on Sunday, 5 October, Fusion Festival is the Sunshine's premiere showcase of community based activities!

Dancing is a great community activity for improving health and lifestyle. You can build social networks, burn calories, increase your flexibility and improve your mind - all at the same time!

The Sunshine Coast's (sexiest/coolest/funkiest) dance school, Backbeat Modern Jive, will perform a dynamic new Modern Jive  routine 'Maneater' on Main Stage at 12:15pm - right after the official opening ceremony!   If you like what you see we can teach you to move to the latest music and top 40 hits in the Workshop Marquee between 1:00 and 3:00pm.

If you seriously want to learn how to look cool on the dance floor, weekly lessons are held in the Maroochydore Community Hall every Sunday night, with beginners' classes commencing at 6:00pm.  Partners are very welcome, but not necessary!
