Jive is a lively, and uninhibited variation of the jitterbug. Many basic patterns are similar to those from East Coast Swing music that originates in Africa-American culture but has been adopted by many other cultures over time for its varied rhythms across geographical regions around our world!

Cab Calloway was the first to demonstrate Jive in 1934 and it caught on with African-American Swing dancers soon after. Swing music was originally played for dancing, which is how the dance got its name: “Jitterbug”. The word jive comes from innovations like Boogie Woogie , Rock & Roll, Afro American Swinging / Lindy Hop.

The name either comes  African dance terms or from jive being a form of glib talk. Jive became a generic term for swing in the United Kingdom.

In International Style ballroom dancing competition, jive is grouped with the Latin dances but is danced to Western music, with 42 bars per minute in 4/4 time.

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

If buying new clothes isn’t really feasible right now consider borrowing from friends who have more options than yourself- they might even let go without asking questions if need be 😉 Shoes should provide both grip on slippery surfaces while making movement easy enough so as not make me feel cumbersome during training sessions

    Our classes are structured and paced so that you can learn how to do the left-footed jive dance form even if it’s your first time. We will explain everything in detail, including footwork steps for each movement—the musicality of when they need be struck or sounded out on different instruments such as guitars (or pianos), counts between sequences etc..

Shannon and Raj are both super lovely people and great teachers. I’ve only been learning with them for a short time and feel like I’ve improved a lot in that period. I was slightly hesitant at first but they made me feel comfortable and now I feel much more confident. The classes are fun and we always end up having a laugh and I look forward to my lessons. Recommended!
