About Revolution Dance

 
 

Keith & Janey can be found teaching at their own venues in Poynton, Stockport & Northwich, or touring the UK and Europe, teaching and performing for many other Jive and Salsa companies, including Blitz Jive another local company, to Rock Bottoms right down south! Together and individually they have performed at the Opera House & Palace Theatre, Manchester, have worked with Katie Melua and the BBC’s Philharmonic Orchestra. Keith also appeared in front of a 10,000 live audience performing 3 dance routines and a solo routine to ‘Mr Bojangles’, whilst over 10 million watched from home.

Other TV appearances included Chanel 4’s ‘Come Dine With Me’, providing the host with cabaret & entertainment, and appearing on CBBC’s ‘Alisha’s Street Dance Stars’ working with Alisha Dixon, providing cabaret & routines for the children to learn and then to progress through to the finals, with Bev taking a place on the judging panel, alongside, Turbo, Kendrick, & Lizzy off ‘So you think you can dance’


Keith & Janey won a BBC ‘Strictly’ Competition at the BBC’s actual ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ Semi-Finals

(It took place between the Saturday Evening show & the Sunday Eliminator, beating off Salsaro’s and Latin Ballroom dancers, one for the Modern Jiver’s!


Since Entering his first Independent Modern Jive Competition ‘Advanced/Open Categories’, with his now wife Janey, some 13 years ago he has never finished lower than the Top 5 Nationally & this has been maintained since with his  3 different dance partners, Victoria ‘Dance Diva’ Bev, both picking up some 1st places along the way.


2012 saw the return of the now famous ‘Revolution Dance show’ this third show was with a beautiful twist with 2 Latin Ballroom Stars, hence ‘Dance Revolution’ was reborn. The first show some 7 years ago was a complete sell out with dancers from all genres of dance showing off their talents. The second saw a more professional image with two of ‘Burn the Floors’ principle dancers headlining the show. 2012 saw the return of our stars, who have since choreographed major parts of ‘Street Dance 2’ whilst Sharna was one of the professional dancers in the USA’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ & Patrick one of the Turkish Dancing with the Stars Pro’s.


Keith Co-Launched the C2D European MJ Competition in 2000, at the Winter Gardens & Tower Ballroom Blackpool, and has subsequently judged at other major competitions, starting with Britroc for 2 consecutive years, then  latterly crowning the UK Blues Champions at ‘BeBo’ Rock Bottoms, in October 2011/12 judged the Welsh Championships & similarly judged the Jive Champs in July 2011/12
