LeRoc Surrey is an independent modern jive dance organisation based in the South East of England, operating classes and freestyle dances at various venues in the Surrey area. We began back in Guildford on 1st November 1995 and rapidly atttracted dancers, moving to Dorking in late 1998 and many thousands of dancers have joined us since. (memberships over 7,000)
Dance at Ashtead Hall on Tuesdays
please check during the final weeks of 2018, as we had to leave Dorking Halls with immediate effect on 16/10/18 because of the dance floor, that has proved impossible to dance on and we are finding venues until end of the year we can dance.
Dance at Ashtead Hall on Tuesdays from 22/1/19 weekly.
Every week, many complete beginners come to learn to dance LeRoc with us.
LeRoc is a fusion of Modern Jive, Smooth, Tango, West Coast Swing and Latin dance styles. It’s a dance for almost every occasion, and it looks brilliant whether you are a complete beginner or an expert.
LeRoc is easy to learn, sociable, fun, and can be danced to most styles of music. A LeRoc night is a great way to meet people, have fun and keep fit!
Colin Shaul is the founder of LeRoc Surrey and is supported by a large team of crew members and dance friends, many have been with us since the start back in 1995.
Colin began dancing modern jive in 1993 and then opened his own club in 1995. He is well known on the dance circuit as a Teacher and DJ at many dance weekenders. He is also a club member of the LeRoc Modern Jive Federation. He is a partner at MJRoc Dance Weekenders.
LeRoc Surrey currently operates one regular weekly dance class locations in Ashtead, plus further events each weekend at a freestyle dance venue on either a Friday or Saturday - check the calendar and our Facebook page for details.
Sadly after nearly 18 years of running of running Monday nights at intially Friends Provident club Dorking, which became Friends Life, then Aviva, its doors closed in October 2016, due to the venue closing.
Then sadly after 19 years on 16th October 18, at Dorking Halls, when arriving for another night of dance, we were immediately forced into a position to cancel all our weekly classes and Ball Night, when after many complaints about the floor and the way its changed recently to a heavy grip resistance floor, which you cannot dance on. It was very sad to be put into this position where the floor cannot be returned to how we enjoyed 19 years until recently, which forced an early depature. You cannot dance on a surface that cannot be prepared to allow this. Something happened this summer and it just got worse to the point no dancing was possibe, hence we have left and now will enjoy dancing at the excellent dance floor at Ashtead Hall.
In addition the cost of the hiring this venue was doubling in 2019 and were unable to meet those finanical demands, so we were moving to our Ashtead venue from 22/1/19 anyway.
So sad it had to end this way at Dorking Halls, with no chance of a grand farwell!
Watch this space for a new Monday night venue or even another night!!
