2018 Modern Jive Dance Camp

July 27th-29th

Sea Breeze is a fun and friendly, great value Modern Jive dance weekender. This year it is held at Point Woolstoncroft on the Central Coast, conveniently located between Newcastle and Sydney. The venue boasts an absolute waterfront 300 square metre timber floor (dividable into two rooms) resting on the shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie.

A rare opportunity to come together at a unique location with a large group of like-minded fellow dancers. A great chance to make new friends, share your love of Modern Jive, both learning and social dancing-wise.

This year will be nostalgic for many of us who attended camps in our younger days. I’m super-excited about the new location!

Workshop Levels

It is important that students are learning at the appropriate level. Ultimately, class allocations will be at the collaborative discretion of teachers and the event director. Whilst it is good for students to be challenged, no one benefits from students attending workshops at a level they are simply not ready for. The safety of students and the provision of a quality learning environment for all attendees will be prioritised. Any questions we will be happy to help and we will always provide a clear rationales for all of our decisions.
