Meet the team....

I'm carefully building a great team of instructors, all chosen for their knowledge and commitment to teaching this great vintage style for Jive 'n' Boogie.

I've been dancing for over twelve years, and have been experienced many courses and lessons in Swing Jive, East Coast Swing, 50's Jive and Lindy Hop. I hope I have brought some of those experiences to our courses and can make learning this great style both fun and easy.

My lovely co-instructors...



Rachael has been with Jive 'n' Boogie for over 7 years and is an all round lover of all things Vintage.  She has a passion for all types of dance and music and she brings this passion to her teaching and boy do the students love her.  Dancing and laughter encompass everything about Rachael's dance classes; if you sign up to Havant you're in for a treat.

Suzi is one of our own!  She started her dancing journey at our Fareham school and from the very start showed so much enthusiasm and such great promise as she raced through the two beginners courses, both beginners plus courses and intermediates to then become a member of our jive crew helping new leads.  She is now one of our established instructors. Suzi just lives for dancing. She's had loads of experience in her very busy dancing time by visiting many of the popular London clubs and weekenders. She is a great asset to Jive 'n' Boogie, bringing her contagious personality and great humour to our classes together with her obvious empathy for absolute beginners

Kelayne was taught by ourselves at Jive 'n' Boogie, attending Rachael's classes at our Havant course  
Having completed both Beginners A and B and Beginners Plus she quickly mastered intermediates and was out and about on the London social dancing scene before she'd completed the courses!
She is already dancing 6 and 8 count Lindy Hop, and Balboa as lead and follow!.

This kind of natural ability is very rare, and now she can enjoy sharing her knowledge to beginners as an instructor at our Fishbourne course!

Anna has been dancing for over ten years now, trying many different styles but definitely preferring dancing 6 count swing jive and Lindy Hop.

Anna has made her mark on the dance world here in the south, but amazingly, has never completed any courses in the vintage world. Anna is a totally natural follow, considered by most to be the best kind of dancer.

Anna has been teaching since our inaugural class in Eastleigh and loves sharing her love of dance and seeing our students progress.
