Jive is an energetic and uninhibited version of the Jitterbug. The basic dance designs are reminiscent from Jive, which is an East Coast swing. Jive is among the 5 International Latin dances, although it comes from Africa.

Jive was first performed by Cab Calloway during 1934. It gained popularity throughout the United States in the 1940s and was influenced by Boogie, Rock & Roll as well as African/American Swing and Lindyhop.

The name is either derived from the word jive, which is a type of glib language or African terminology for dance. Jive has become a general term that refers to swing within the United Kingdom.

In an International Style ballroom dancing competition Jive is often grouped with the Latin dances, but it is performed to Western music. It has the 42 bar per minute, in 4/4 time.

Jive as well as East Coast swing share many characters, and also the same style of music and tempo. The primary characteristics of jive is in the way it’s performed, with a lots of energy and a lot of enthusiasm with the legs displaying the sensation of a pulsing dance.

Both the East Coast swing and basic jive consist of two triple steps and a rock step.

The jive differs in that the count begins with the rock step, which is counted “1, 2.” The two triple steps are counted “3 and 4” and “5 and 6.” In competition, it is danced at 176 beats per minute.

Jive is a very joyful energetic, lively dance that includes many knee-lifts as well as bending and rocking on the hips. It is the fastest of the Latin dances. Jive involves a lot of flicks and kicks and even twirling of the female dancer, but isn’t able to move around the dance floor as do other dances.

While jive dancers appear to be hopping around across the entire floor, the feet are actually controlled under the body, with knees together.
