JiveSwing on BBC Wartime Farm

Tuesday, 16th October, 2012

JiveSwing teacher Joseph Sewell, was recently invited to teach and perform on a BBC international television documentary, about the arrival of Swing Dancing in the UK, with an empahasis on the Black GI’s.


Joseph & Charlotte, with the Cast of BBC Wartime Farm

In order to share the opportunity, we invited a large number of performers, from JiveSwing, to  join us. It was great experience to work with presenters Ruth Goodman, Alex Langlands and the cast and have everyone dressed in vintage or military attire.

Joseph Sewell, was interviewed by Ruth Goodman, prior to showing her a few steps and taking her for a quick dance.

It was amazing to see the room transformed, into a period village hall, as Joseph & Charlotte Middlemiss, led everyone into a recreation of the social dancing, featuring Jive and Lindy Hop.
