about us at JiveBoogie.com
the bare facts and the awful truth
We are Steve and Carole and we've been dancing Modern Jive together since 1996.
During our dancing 'career' we have taught and demo'd at many club nights, freestyles and workshops in the UK and Spain.
We have also given our personal tuition to many couples who wanted a routine for a special occasion or who were about to embark on their life of married bliss.
For a while, between 2000 and 2002, we were involved in theatre productions and choreographed routines for a number of stage shows, including a complete production of "Shake, Ripple & Roll", a musical set in the 1950's featuring an awful lot of good ol' Rock'n'Roll!
In her very early life, Carole started out in ballet and tap until she discovered pop music, disco and boys!
In the late-80's she re-kindled her love of tap by enrolling in a class run by one of the original cast from the musical, "Cats". This raised her sights to group competition.
After this, coached by another professional dance teacher, their troupe went on to take second place in the 1992 South of England Championships group dance category. She then went on to appear in regional stage productions such as "Stepping Out", "Cabaret" and various pantos.
Steve's early life resembled Carole's like a flower resembles a motorbike. He spent most of it trying to avoid the retribution that seemed to be always just around the corner following his latest ill-thought-out escapade.
Until one day, in his teenage years, he saw the light and realised that the boy who was good at dancing, rather than fighting, always seemed to get the girl!
The rest, as they say, is mystery...
