2Rock Acrobatic Rock 'n' Roll Club
Last few sessions of the year - extended course until 12 December 2016
Our longest course of the year has ended but that's not it. The good news is that we have enough people interested in extending the course. So we are going to have 3 more Mondays (until 12/12), yay!
Current sessions are suitable for you, if you know already some basics of rock and roll dancing and acrobatics. If you've been to at least two or three 2Rock sessions before, you should be fine to come, as we won't have the time to explain basics now.
A new course suitable also for first-timers will start in January. You can sign up already now, if you wish to secure your place.

Dress code: Sporty (similar to fitness gym or aerobic classes), something not very baggy, clean trainers, towel, water bottle.
Session structure: in the first hour: warm-up, rock 'n' roll dance preparation; second hour: acrobatic preparation, 1-3 acrobatic figures, cool-down. Those not interested in dancing can use first hour for repeating of acrobatic moves from previous sessions. Occasionally all teaching is squeezed into the first hour, followed by an open hour dedicated to practising, repeating of previous stuff.
If you like related sports like cheerleading, acrobalance, acro yoga, figure ice skating, trampoline or circus acrobatics, you will certainly love acrobatic rock and roll. Or maybe you would like to use your gymnastic skills or wish to improve your aerials, adage and lifts in other dances like Modern Jive or Lindy Hop. Why not join us and try something new? It is safer than you think. Everybody can do this.
ACROBATIC ROCK 'n' ROLL is the MODERN European style of competitive dancing, slightly different from the authentic 1950's style. And 2Rock is the acrobatic rock 'n' roll club in London and Cambridge, where you can learn this fast paced energetic dance.
We would like you to fill in a simple questionnaire (10 questions in 3 minutes) on the Survey page in order to set up the structure of the sessions to meet the requirements of the majority of members.
The club is lead by Steve 2Rock (Stefan Turok), an acrobatic rock 'n' roll coach with many years of experience as a coach, judge and dancer. He is still an active dancer competing at European Cups with his partner Laura Cope. European competitions are organised according to WRRC's rules. The club is a member of the BRRF, British Rock 'n' Roll DanceSport Federation.
The 2Rock website has been active since 8/4/2011. It changes regularly, so check the website from time to time, especially before your intended visit.
Our own acrobatic rock 'n' roll dancers, couple Steve Turok and Laura Cope have performed for Got To Dance Series 3. The performance has been first time broadcast on Sunday 8th January 2012 at 7PM on Sky1 HD TV.
You could have seen them also performing at Corn Exchange or ADC Theatre in Cambridge at annual CUCDW dance shows, Cambridge University May Balls, Royal Albert Hall in London, also in Blackpool and many competitions, balls and other events.
