Meet our Instructors
Dave is just an all round good guy, and loves to pass on his knowledge to as many people as he possibly can. He's always on the hunt for something old to rave about, whether it's a vintage artist he's just discovered or a new dance move he's learnt. Either way you're in good hands with him!
Sam just personifies style and she brings this to her teaching ability. Every student at Banstead feels at ease when Sam takes a class, and instantly feels the benefit of her dance knowledge.
Rachael is an all round lover of all things Vintage. She has a passion for all types of dance and music from the 40's and 50's 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 Waterlooville 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 during last year's courses. Suzi just lives for dancing. She's had loads of experience in her brief but very busy dancing time by visiting many of the popular London clubs and weekenders. We're sure Suzi will be 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.Read more about Suzi
Kellayne is our latest addition to our instructors, and once again was taught by ourselves.
She quickly mastered the beginners course and by just week 4 was already demonstrating a natural abilty to learn moves and steps very quickly.
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!
Kelayne has just completed her second beginners course as a Lead and will be doing beginners plus as a lead this term. She is already dancing 6 and 8 count Lindy Hop, and Balboa. This kind of natural ability is very rare, and now she can enjoy sharing her knowledge to beginners as a trainee instructor at our Chichester course!Read more about Kelayne
