The JiveSwing Blog!

Our new JiveSwing website

Tuesday, 1st January, 2013

Today, at the start of a brand new year, we launch our brand new website!

You’ll find everything that was on our old website, plus lots of new content, including the much requested learning area, where we will post recaps of the moves you’ve learnt in class. We’ve already put up videos of adding turns to Charleston moves and Joseph’s review of the JiveSwing Stroll. If you’re not doing the JiveSwing Stroll in your sleep then you haven’t watched it enough times!

We all have so much fun at JiveSwing we thought it was about time everyone else realised it too. Have a look on the various pages and you’ll find lots of (not too embarrassing) photos of our antics in and out of class. Contained within the pages of this website is Charlotte Middlemiss dancing with a giant bear… an idea for the next Charlie’s Angels routine perhaps?

Finally, just in case you wondered where the inspiration for our new website design came from, have a look at the video below. We are passionate about the roots of Swing Dance and we have celebrated that with our own take on Harlem’s Savoy Ballroom, where the legendary Norma Miller grew up watching the world’s finest Lindy Hoppers dancing the night away, from the fire escape of her apartment.

Happy New Year JiveSwingers!
