JC Dance Club

Introducing JC Dance Club: Ballroom is a partnership dance where couples use step-patterns and rotate counter-clockwise when moving around the floor. It focuses on the elegance, grace and fluid movement of the dance.

JC Dance Club was formed in 1990 by a phenomenal couple named Jaya and Cookie Chengleroyan. Although a very humble couple, these ballroom professionals have racked up numerous accolades in the dance industry. Jaya and Cookie are highly qualified from the South African Dance Teachers’  Association (SADTA). They are also former South African Ballroom and Professional Showdance Champions and  National Dance Adjudicators. The ever-friendly Jaya has recently been appointed as Chairman of the Adjudicators. SADTA have appointed this exceptional couple as Examiners of Ballroom and Latin American Dance. Jaya and Cookie are further more Licentiate Qualified in Ballroom and Latin American, and Associate Qualified in Line Dancing.

Aftermath DJ Club have provided quality music for almost all of the JC Dance Club Socials over the years. The music for these awesome socials consisted of Ballroom, Line Dancing, Jazz, R ‘n B, 80’s and Local Music. The men and women are always elegantly dressed. I find that the ambience at a JC Dance Club Social is always relaxed and inviting. Their socials are always attended by various dance academies such as Wings Dance Academy, Solo Steppin’, Circle of Friends, La Paloma, Pavi’s School of Dance and Latino School of Dance. Dj’ying for JC Dance Club is always a pleasure and the high skill in dance by Jaya and Cookie always shows through in their students.
