Jive

Latin American Dance

Originating in the 1940’s of United States, Jive was influenced by the Boogie, Rock & Roll, Swing and Lindyhop. Since it is the fastest dance, competitive dancers perform it at the end – that’s where their dance skills are tested to the limit. Jive basics consist of a rock step and two triple steps. It is a very happy, energetic dance, with plenty of knee-lifting, hip swinging, kicking, flicking and twirling.
