Welcome to Ceroc Vancouver

You are here: Home

Where you can learn to dance in one night, no experience necessary!

Ceroc (pronounced sir-rock) is the only place in Vancouver to learn modern jive, a fun-filled fusion of jive, tango, ballroom, swing, and salsa dancing. Ceroc/modern jive is also the only partner dance with no complicated beginner footwork!

We offer dance classes across Vancouver, with drop-in dance nights on Main Street every Thursday, plus more intensive dance workshops downtown and at other select studios on weekends. Lifetime membership is $5, a dance night is $12 or save money with our $50 monthly pass.

Our next Ceroc night is listed on our calendar. Ceroc venues worldwide have been introducing people to the world of partner dancing for over 20 years. We look forward to seeing you at one of our dance nights.

What’s Not To Like?

March 5th 2014

Springtime at Ceroc Vancouver has never been busier! We have new beginner moves & routines, several events coming up, Cerocshops to look forward to, a Living Social deal for NEW members in the pipeline, plus our regular Tuesday & Thursday night classes.

The Annual Spring Ball will be held on March 20th at the Cambrian Hall. There will be one fun lesson and then freestyle all night. Dress To Impress (and no, clean jeans & T-shirt does not count!). Then we have our Ceroc X Mini-Champs on April 17th. Learn a routine of 8 moves at Ceroc on specific nights or teach yourself at home and then compete against for fellow dancers. It’s always good to have something to work towards and this kind of event will really ramp up your dancing style and confidence. If you don’t want to compete, there will be a lesson to start the evening and lots of freestyle in between the competition heats.The next BFFF night is April 1st (no fooling’) at the PVA Hall. Cerocshops will be posted soon and we are definitely covering the new beginner moves, plus ‘slow style’ Ceroc.

Living Social are poised to run a month pass deal for new members only (tell all your non-member friends) and we will be running a month pass deal for our supportive members - find it here!

Enough from us, go dance!!!


Seasons Greetings

November 20th, 2013

What a great year 2013 has been!!! Ceroc Vancouver goes from strength to strength with more fun dancers and fabulous Crew than ever before. We had the biggest and best summer of performances from a superb Dance Team and managed to raise almost $3000 for the flooded Kits Showboat. BUT it’s not over until the fat lady sings, so we still have a few more dance nights and events for you to enjoy! Ceroc runs every Tuesday and every Thursday until December 10. Festive Freestyle Frenzy takes place on Dec 3rd where 3 DJs take over for the evening and the dance floor really heats up. This event is half-price entry for both members and non-members. The last Ceroc night of the year is our “Dress To Impress” Christmas Party on Dec 10 with themed lessons, party games and prizes, snacks and mulled drinks. And don’t forget that there’s one last Cerocshop on Saturday November 30 - dips & drops - so you’ll have some super moves to show off at your company's Christmas party!

We hope you have a fantastic festive season and wish you all the very best for the New Year. After Dec 10, we’ll see you on Tuesday January 7 2014.


Summer Sizzlers

August 6thth, 2013

Regular Thursday Ceroc classes at the Cambrian continue throughout the summer. Why sit at home, sweating on your own, when you can work up a sweat with friends?!?

The 2013 Dance Team has a bumper performance line-up this year. Come and see what the team has to offer at the following venues:

Kits Showboat, Friday 9th August, 8:15pm

Richmond Night Market, Sunday 11th and Friday 16th August, 8:00pm

Our next Bring Friends For Free night is Thursday August 29th.

And last, but certainly not least, we'll be launching our new venue on Tuesday September 10th. Weekly Tuesday classes will be held at the Polish Veterans' Association Hall, 1134 Kingsway (Kingsway & 20th). The venue has a gorgeous wooden floor, air-con and plenty of parking. There are also a number of restaurants and bars nearby. We are seriously excited about the new dance floor!!!


Spring Loaded!!!

March 20th, 2013

What a fabulous few months we have coming up. Kicking off the season in fashionable style is the annual Ceroc Spring Ball on Friday March 22nd. Dazzle your fellow dancers with your ‘Dress To Impress’ outfit and your fancy dance floor moves. After such a fabulous event, we will be taking a breather on Friday March 29th (Good Friday) as there will be no Ceroc that night.

April is chock-full of shiny, happy dance events. Cerocshops offered during this month include Beginner Blast (April 7th) and Learn a Routine in One Day (April 21st). Both are beginner/easy intermediate level. Book today to avoid disappointment! The next Bring Friends For Free night is Friday April 12th. All Ceroc members can bring non-members for free; a great way to introduce your friends to the wonderful world of Ceroc.

Last, but definitely not least, we are putting the FUN back in fundraiser. "Ceroc Around The Clock" is a 12 hour danceathon organised by Ceroc Vancouver to raise money for the flooded Kitsilano Showboat. Register today to collect pledges or pay $20 at the door for this dance-tastic event.


So many events, so little time!

September 23rd, 2012

After a fabulous summer of dancing and excellent Dance Teams performances, we are girding our loins for a fun & frantic Fall!

Cerocshops are happening! And they are happening on the following Sundays: Sept 23, Oct 14, Oct 28, Nov 25. These workshops cover all kinds of things that you don't get to see at a regular Ceroc night and there's one for every level of dancer. Book your place now to avoid disappointment.

"Bring Friends For Free Nights" for Ceroc members always have a great vibe and are a wonderful way to see some new faces. The next BFFF nights are scheduled for Sept 20, Oct 26, Nov 22. Tell your friends to put at least one of those dates in their diaries!

And, as if that wasn't enough, Ceroc has several exciting events planned in the coming months:

Brush off your tuxedo, practise your best British accent, and start drinking martinis............yes, we have a James Bond party on Friday Nov (0)09, to celebrate the release of Skyfall. Come as a suave James Bond or a sultry Bond Girl or a dastardly Bond Villian but leave any authentic firearms at home!

The popular Cabaret at the Cambrian is scheduled for Thursday Dec. 6th. If you would like to showcase your talents (dancing, singing, juggling, telling family-friendly jokes etc.), email Kerry and she will book your act. Every entry wins a prize woo hoo! If you'd like to keep your talents hidden, then just come along to cheer on everyone else and have a great night of dancing.

Our last event of the year will be the Ceroc Christmas Party (there, we said it, yes Christmas already!) on Friday Dec 14. Wear something red, white & sparkly and be prepared for some fun lessons, party games, lots of freestyle and presents under the tree (only for those on the naughty list).


Springing into action!

April 3rd, 2012

We have so much planned for Ceroc over the next couple of months, it's like a cherry tree crammed with beautiful blossoms!! Cerocshops are ongoing and we have a bit of something for everyone: Moves Made Magic on April 22nd for beginner/easy intermediate, plus Mini-Aerials (May 13th) and Ducks (May 27th) for intermediate dancers. They are filling up fast so book your space online or on the door at a Ceroc night. Our next Freestyle Frenzy half-price dance party is on April 27th and it's going to be a bit special. We will have a crew there filming a reality TV show for the Slice Network. So dress up, bring your friends, break out your best moves and dance like EVERYBODY'S watching! The next Bring Friends For Free night is May 18th and the following week (May 25th) will be Ceroc Vancouver's 6th Birthday Party! It's all go, you know. As if that wasn't enough, we are actively recruiting enthusiastic dancers for the 2012 Dance Team. Speak to one of the teachers or come to an info session on May 17th/18th. All abilities welcome!


It's all go, go, go!

February 20th, 2012

Ceroc Vancouver got off to a great start in 2012 and we're only just out of the starting blocks! Our first big event of the year is our Mardi Gras Masked Ball on Friday Feb 24th. Costumes, beads & masks are all encouraged at this fun frenzy. If you can't drag your friends out for that one, then try our next Bring Friends For Free night on Thursday March 22nd. Ceroc members can bring in any number of non-members for free. Cerocshops will start in earnest in March and details will be posted soon. And it's never too early to start thinking about Dance Team......... ask a Ceroc teacher if you are interested/intrigued!
