About Jive 'n' Boogie

About Us

Jive ‘n’ Boogie is owned and run by David Lovegrove. David and his team organise vintage swing jive courses and social dances in Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex.

The aim is to provide quality tuition to newcomers to the vintage dance world by teaching the basic steps and dance moves danced at all vintage events, and pride themselves in being the only dance organisation on the south coast teaching this style as part of a progressive structured 10 week beginners course.

Jive 'n' Boogie provide quality social dance events for their students to attend and enjoy, and are happy to refer their students to other local social dances.

David Lovegrove has attended many dance schools and courses throughout Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey. 

In his 10 year dance career, he's attended many classes from Lindy Hop to East Coast Swing to 50’s Rock & Roll and has drawn on these experiences to develop a successful and winning format for his courses.

JIve 'n' Boogie is constantly listening, revising and improving it's courses based on customer feedback and experiences from its great crew of instructors and helpers. It welcomes your comments and feedback to continuously improve its courses.
