Fred and Ginger were beginners – Once!

“Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers were both beginners once you know – both walked into their first dance class.”
Tom Jive has over 20 years dancing and teaching experience from all the dance halls in Ireland London and Boston. Having won many competitions in different styles, he has been taught by great dance masters around the world.
Competent Dancers in Weeks
