Unsolicited Comments on The Modern Jive Toolkit

Roy (Stylz Jive):
"Thought it was excellent. I particularly liked the way you gave terminology to each aspect of modern jive. I found this so helpful. I have been teaching for about 6 years now. Sometimes you know what you want to put across but the way to describe exactly what you want to say, without causing any misunderstanding, can be difficult. I thought the clear way you described the various aspects of lead & follow was brilliant.
"Every teacher should watch this."

Steve (Corporate Dance Company ):
"I was impressed by your DVD it was very informative and echoes my feelings about what new and other dancers need to know."
And "I have now seen the DVD all the way through and I think that it is even better than before as it informs us more mature dancers who may, may mark you, have thought we knew it all."

Janice (Northern Jive):
"The DVD is really good for all levels of dancers - I've been dancing 10 years and I was surprised how much I learned from watching it."

Nikki & David (Want2Dance Burton):
"Just wanted to say we thought the "Toolkit" DVD was very good - not just because it reinforced so much of our own personal approach with teaching smooth Modern Jive, but as an invaluable tool for Beginners and more experienced dancers alike."

David Cronshaw:
"I really like the John Sweeney DVD 'Modern Jive Toolkit' - I have a feeling that this will become a Modern Jive 'bible' for intermediate dancers."

Richard Brown:
"I would just like to take this opportunity to say how much I appreciate yours and John's "Modern Jive Toolkit" DVD. It really is an excellent guide to dancing modern jive with more style. I have found John's emphasis on "the gentle hand" very sound advice, particularly when dancing with more experienced partners."

Teri Collingwood (JiveRoc Modern Jive):
"I just love your Modern Jive Toolkit DVD - it's my go-to for pearls of wisdom and it has helped me help the lovely dancers."
