JiveSwing.Com was founded by Joseph Sewell back in 1996, via informal and small social Jive and swing dance events, in Hampshire, with the help of his friends.
After relocating to Hertfordshire in 1997, Joseph began teaching for Ceroc, in London, Beds, Essex and Hertfordshire until 2001, when he formed his first official Lindy Hop class in Digswell, as a hobby in order to bring his passion for Swing dancing to Hertfordshire.
Since then Joseph has trained a number of teachers to the highest international standards seen on the Swing Dance scene, teaching and performing with them on a daily and weekly basis, throughout Hertfordshire, Essex, Middlesex, north London, Kent and further afield.
All teachers undergo an extensive 2 – 3 year long teacher training programme, followed by further on-going training. This is supported by our amazing JiveSwing crew, so you can be assured of the highest standard of teaching and a friendly welcome, whichever JiveSwing class you choose to attend.
In addition we also have three performance groups, ranging from amateur to professional, to cater for all types of events.
JiveSwing teachers and performers are available for private, group classes, workshops, schools, performances, private parties, weddings, hen and stag events, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, music videos, TV assignments and more.
