Hello from the Jivefrenzy Crew

Years dancing: 20
I am the owner and teacher of Jivefrenzy. I have been passionate about Modern Jive for 20 years, teaching across the country, taking part in dance weekends as a DJ and running charity events. I am very proud of my Jivefrenzy crew that I now call family.
Name: Sally Bates
Years dancing: 24
I’ve been dancing Modern Jive for 24 years & have known Kane for at least 12 of those years. During the last 6 years we’ve worked together running a WCS club & jive classes during the lockdown. I’m passionate about dancing so when Kane opened Jive Frenzy in Bolney I offered to help & have been his front of house & partner in crime which I love.
Years dancing: I have been dancing on and off since the late 1990s when a colleague suggested I take Modern Jive lessons from the best friend of her husband. She said “You’ll love it” and she was right. I love moving to the music and the social side of dance has given me many friends.
I’ve always wanted to crew and couldn’t be happier now that I’ve joined the Jive Frenzy team.

Years dancing: 16 years on and off
Modern Jive gives me a fabulous social scene, a time to escape and enjoy the music and movement of dance. Dancing really brings me so much fun, I couldn’t imagine my life without dance in it. When I began dancing 16 years ago he lovely Sally was my inspirational teacher and I am still here dancing with her, although I have tried to get away from her many times!!! I can honestly say dancing has become my passion and it has helped me in a lot of aspects in life. I highly recommend everyone should give it a go.

Years dancing: I have been dancing since I was 3, ballet, tap and modern. I only started Modern Jive when I was in my late teens. I dragged a few friends along and fell in love with it. After a couple of years life took over and I stopped dancing. Fast forward 12 years and a friend asked me if I wanted to dust off my dancing shoes and go to Jive frenzy. I absolutely love dancing, its fab exercise, without feeling like it and everyone is super friendly and helpful. I have a new bunch of crazy dance friends and I love it!

I took up Modern Jive in 2008 having previously learned ballroom for several years. I have danced at many venues both locally and nationally and have been to several dance weekenders. As I developed as a dancer, I started teaching around 2017 and gained formal accreditation as a teacher in September 2022. I am a member of the Leroc Modern Jive Federation and the UKA Dance Association.

When looking for a new hobby in early 2018, it was a toss-up between Modern Jive and Salsa classes on the same night. Luckily I chose Modern Jive and have not looked back since. I love being able to dance on holiday, at parties, and at other venues across the country, and the warm, inclusive nature of the Modern Jive dance scene.
