Ceroc French Jive: Puttin' On The Glitz

Ceroc French Jive: Puttin' On The Glitz

Ceroc French Jive celebrates 20 years in New Zealand this year. In 1988 Angelique Meyer took on teaching Ceroc in NZ after a dare by her brother. There are now 29 Ceroc clubs across the country from Whangarei to Invercargill.

Ceroc French Jive is a fusion of American Jitterbug with the French Boogie Français, the result: a stylish easy to learn social dance phenomenon. The name Ceroc is an abbriviation from the French 'c'est le rock', shorthand for lets boogie!

Ceroc French Jive works its charms on almost everyone, even those with two left feet find they can make good progress. And it is becoming popular to do a little 'c'est le rock' for your wedding dance.

"Even after dancing for twenty years, I still haven't tired of this dance, every time it wakes me up, makes me feel good, its a natural pick me up" say Meyer, "and sometimes dancing is so peaceful, so centred, its like a Zen experience".

You can join les Cerocers for a night of celebration and if you are a veteran Cerocer, you are invited to bring your photographs and relive some memories.

Sumptuous Prizes, Belle of the Ball, Entertainment, DJs, Buffet Meal, Cash Bar, Indoor and Outdoor dancing.

Tickets: $70 available at Ceroc Studio, 28 Lorne St, Auckland. Otherwise post a cheque to - CerocNZ, PO Box 3065, Shortland St, Ak 1140.
