What is Swing Jive

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

In itself, it’s not a style as such-more a collection of different dances 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 course format teaches 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.
