About Us

Teaching the South Coast Jive & Stroll  for over 20 years! 

Brighton Jive was formed in 1999 between friends and dance partners Colin Tenn & Janneke Saebo. Starting with a small class on Sunday evenings which proved so popular a second class soon followed.

In 2003,  Colin & Janneke decided to become full-time Jive instructors. In 2008 Janneke moved back to London and Colin continued teaching.

Sue & Colin met in 2017 and began running school workshops.
The partnership flourished and they soon began working together on Brighton Jive.

Over 18,000 people have learnt to jive with Brighton Jive so far!
