Dance Studio Celebrate their
1st birthday on the beach

Backbeat Modern Jive was invited to the Sunshine Coast one year ago by locals.  Locals would travel to Brisbane to learn Modern Jive, also known as Ceroc, every week to learn the sexy style of dance.  They loved it so much they invited Backbeat Modern Jive up to the Sunshine Coast and they have been riding the dancing wave since. 

Modern Jive incorporates Latin, Jive and Salsa so you get the sexiness of Salsa and the energy of Jive in a simple two step dance.  As the name suggests Modern Jive is danced to most popular songs and Top 40 hits.  The style and music means you can dance anywhere, weddings, parties, functions and Balls. 

To celebrate their success on the coast, Backbeat is having a beach themed party, Friday 11th April.  There will be entertainment, a live DJ playing a variety of music for all dance styles. The highlight of the night will be routines performed by some of Brisbane's best Modern Jive dancers.  It will be a fun night of dancing that will inspire the coast.

Owner, Ray Sawyer loves it up the coast saying "the sunny coasters love to dance and they are very friendly people who know how to have fun.   That's why we chose a beach party as a theme for our first birthday". 

In their first year Backbeat have been riding the fun wave, already offering two routines, social events and a few parties.  There are many more events coming up including a Dirty Dancing theme night in May. 

Everyone is welcome to the Beach Party; it will be an awesome night of dancing, entertainment and fun.

DANCE OFF!

Sexy, Fun and Challenging - These are just a few of the key elements, Backbeat Dancing strive for in their successful dance classes. Based in Maroochydore, Backbeat Modern Jive dance club uses a sexy style of dancing that owner Sue-Ellen Fraser says is "Perfect for singles, young adults and the young at heart…it's a sexy mix of Jive, Latin and Salsa".

At the end of each class, the dance-floor turns into a stage - as dancers from the intermediate group "dance-off" against the beginners group. "The competitiveness of the dance-off's actually help dancers remember the moves that they have learnt" says Sue-Ellen.

This popular technique comes off the back of a dance explosion, thanks to TV shows So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars. "People love the shows, they inspire our dancers…" says Sue-Ellen.

Sue-Ellen and husband Ray combined dancing experience spans over 10yrs, and Ray the head instructor at Backbeat Modern Jive also instructs at the Brisbane CerocClub. Sue-Ellen and Ray started classes on the Sunshine Coast almost a year ago,  class sizes vary between 20-35 people but as Sue-Ellen says "…w ehave an awesome hall with plenty of room for more people" and Backbeat dancing welcomes dancers of all levels.

It's not all hard work either, always keep fun in all their classes, incorporating games and take advantage of the RSL next door,  often head to the RSL aftetr class for some more dancing and socialising.
