The Ceroc Story

From the Eighties to the Noughties - A brief history of Ceroc

The Ceroc Story

The first ever Ceroc event was hosted in 1980 in Porchester Hall by James Cronin. Over the next few years, the popularity of social partner dancing exploded across the London nightclub scene, mainly because lessons were so accessible and achievable for complete dance Beginners.

By the early 90s, Ceroc had spread across the entire UK and the Ceroc Teachers Association began to grow. The best teachers in the dance circuit went through rigorous training and assessment in order to host their own dance lessons and freestyles in their local area.

In the noughties, the reins of Ceroc were handed to Mike Ellard and membership figures climbed to 500,000. The Dance Department was under the new management with Tim Sant, a qualified Dance Education specialist, who reinvented the syllabus to make the moves fresh and achievable for all. 

To this day, the Ceroc management team continue to develop their teachers, their dance moves and their music styles to ensure our members receive an exciting and varied dance experience in over 250 relaxed and social venues across the globe.
