Sooji Clarkson & Julian McCracken
Sooji & Julian have been competing in Ceroc for many years now and have accrued numerous trophies in the different levels and categories of Modern Jive competition.
Last year they teamed up to compete together in their favourite category: Advanced Open, which incorporates floor moves and aerial lifts.
They are now the Ceroc NZ Advanced Open National Champions.
Sooji and Julian teach for the Cityside franchise of Ceroc NZ, enjoy showcasing Modern Jive aerials where they can and together have been dancing Ceroc for 18 years.
Ceroc is an abbreviation of the French phrase c'est Rock. Ceroc dates back to France in World War II, when the American GIs showed the French how to swing and jitterbug. With the sixties, dance was inspired by the Twist, the Watusi and the Mashed Potato.
In the eighties, Ceroc spread world wide. Now people in the USA, UK, Europe, New Zealand and Australia enjoy dancing Ceroc; with venues in most major cities.
Influenced by Ballroom, Latin American, and Rock 'n' Roll, Ceroc has become an addictive dance style with something for everyone!
