FOR JIVE DANCE LESSONS ENQUIRY
Jive is a lively, and uninhibited variation of the jitterbug. Many basic patterns are similar to those seen in East Coast Swing which has African American origins but was first demonstrated by Cab Calloway in 1934 who called it “jive” due either from its use as glib talk or because these dances come from Africa’s native languages (or both).
It caught on in the United States in the 1940s and was influenced by the Boogie, Rock & Roll, African/American Swing, and Lindyhop.
In International Style ballroom dancing competition, jive is grouped with the Latin dances but it is danced to Western music, with 42 bars per minute in 4/4 time.
