Marriage is not a ritual or an end…

“Marriage is not a ritual or an end. It is a long, intricate, intimate dance together and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance and your choice of partner.”

Amy Bloom

Ceroc is a popular modern partner dance in the Western world. It can easily be danced to a very wide range of music by people of all ages – from 16 to 90+. Ceroc has only a few basic rules:

  • Ceroc is a freestyle dance where routine is developed on the spot (or ‘off the cuff’)
  • The man is leading the woman through a series of ‘moves’ at random
  • The woman knows the moves in general, but never knows which one is coming, so ‘good tuning in’ is essential on lady’s part
  • Drink dancing is not allowed: “if you have had too much to drive, you’ve had too much to dance”
  • Ceroc is a no-fault dance: no one is allowed to blame a partner for missed execution of figures or mishaps on the dance floor
  • Sensitivity to partner’s preferences, smile and positive attitude is a must no matter how tired you are or what a bad day you had.
