Dance workshops:  There will be freestyle most evenings with classes and a farewell party night. The dancing is suitable for dancers with some experience through to advanced dancers (we recommend that complete beginners take a few classes before joining the holiday).

All of our Jive events are gender balanced. We believe that gender balancing is an important feature of our events as it ensures maximum enjoyment for everyone. By nature, Jive requires a male lead and to create a successful event it is important for both men and women to have equal workshop and freestyle opportunities.

We work incredibly hard to ensure a successful gender balance. Sometimes not everyone turns up to the classes or freestyles but we know how important the gender balance is and it is top of our priorities.
 

Teaching the Ski-Jive workshops and dancing with you on the Ski-Jive Freestyle Nights will be Debbie Attwood from Ceroc UK.  Debbie brings her infectious enthusiasm and polished teaching method to Morzine. Debbie is much more than just a teacher; she will be hosting the trip and is a real party starter. Debbie will tailor the itinerary to you and ensure you have an explosive week.

Cuisne:  Food is a great part of life in the French Alps, and with all those outdoor pursuits to try you can rest assured it is all very hearty! Local specialities are often cheese or cream based (sometimes both…) featuring local meats, potatoes and with a token green salad. The food in the Alps is often accused of being unadventurous and ‘lardy’ but there are plenty of delicious regional dishes besides the good old fondue. The emphasis is very much on fresh local produce and so cured and seasoned meats will have come from cattle grazed on Alpine pastures, the local cheeses of Abondance and Beaufort will be prevalent and, although there isn’t a coastline in sight, there is still a regional fish dish! The féra is caught in nearby Lake Geneva and is a popular dish served in many restaurants, alongside other lake fish such as Omble Chevalier (char), truite (trout), brochet (pike) and perche (perch).

 

 

On Arrival: You will receive a detailed itinerary.

Tour Host: Over the week you will have a tour host who will be available to help you with any questions that you may have. Whilst it should be noted that tour hosts cannot be present at every moment, their role is to facilitate as much as possible that you have an unforgettable holiday.

Overview of the Week and Welcome Drink: At the beginning of the week there is an Overview of the Week where your tour host will tell you about all details of your holiday. Also at the start of the week, Club Dance Holidays will invite you to be our guest to a drink.

Getting Around: You are responsible for making your own way to the dance classes and meeting points on the itinerary.

 

 

Banks and Money: The easiest way to buy obtain euros is by using a credit card at the cashpoints which are located at five minutes walking distance from the hotel. You can buy small amounts, as often as you like, at any time, without queuing. You will need to know your P.I.N. Banks in Morzine are usually open Tuesday to Friday 09:00 - 12:00 & 14:00 - 18:00, and Saturday 09:00 - 12:00. Banks will change cash, travellers cheques and will sell you currency on your credit card providing the lines are open. You will always need to show your passport at a bank.

Tipping 

Think of it as a gesture, not an obligation. Whilst it's not necessary it is aprecited for good service. A good tip for taxi drivers is 10% of the fare. Good service at a casual eatery from your waiter/waitress can propose 1 to 3 euro tip, or 5% of the bill for somewhere a bit fancier. 

We include freestyle dancing in our private venue most evenings as well as a quiz night and a chance to enjoy the local bars.

There are certainly no shortages of places to go for a drink in Morzine with a variety of bars/clubs and events that each offer something unique. From Inferno for some apres-ski action looking over Morzine and surrounding mountains, to the original live music venue Dixie Bar where you'll find Irish band 'Dixie Micks' playing regualry. 

Morzine also has a real beer scene up and coming with a number of micro breweries and local ales to sample. The most common of these is Mutzig which you should find served along with other local beers and great food at The Bec Jaune. For a back home pub feel though, you can check out the Rhodas bar & the Sherpa bar for a late night pint and some live music. 

Whether it be a quick drink stop before headng down the mountain in time for dinner, or partying into the early hours, Morzine has something to cater all moods and desires.
