Arrive and jive

Tom Jive is teaching beginner four week jive courses in The Ardilaun hotel, Taylor’s Hill, Galway, this November. This is a wonderful opportunity to improve your dancing skills for the next social event or wedding you attend.

Nathan Carter, Derek Ryan, Mike Denver, and many more are riding high on RTÉ while jiving has taken Ireland by storm. Now is your chance to learn from the beginning.

The four week jive-only style format taught by Tom Jive has been very successful for a number reasons. The progressive nature of the class means an absolute beginner on week one can turn into a very competent dancer by week four. Visit and watch the video of classes on week four showing off great jive moves from students, many of whom had never danced before joining in week one.

"Another reason people enjoy my course is I teach the ladies' steps and also show the men exactly how to turn their partners. Dancers with some experience come to improve their timing and learn the nice moves. Also, I’m very lucky in that I seem to attract equal numbers of men and women," Tom Jive told the Advertiser.

So, if you are interested in learning Irish jive take this rare opportunity to learn from an expert. Classes begin on Tuesday November 6. Two class times are available in in The Ardilaun — 7pm to 8.15pm or 8.30pm to 9.45pm.

You can bring a partner or attend on your own. "Don't worry, my class is a very friendly relaxed atmosphere," Tom Jive added. "We start at the very beginning so no experience is required either."

Prices for the four week courses are €40 for singles, €60 for couples, and €25 for students.
