What is Swing Jive?

Swing Jive is one of the most popular vintage dance styles, danced at all vintage dance events.

In itself, it’s not a style as such but more a collection of different styles from the 30s, 40s and 50s incorporating Charleston, Lindy-Hop, East Coast Swing and 50s Rock & Roll Jive.

Based on the 6 count footwork pattern, it’s versatility is it’s ability to be danced to a faster Rock & Roll beat, as well as slower Swing music with equal ease.

Our tried and tested Beginners Courses teach you the basic footwork together with popular jive moves that ‘fit’ this style perfectly, and look authentic when danced to R&B, Swing and Rock & Roll.
