Jive Moves – Change of Places Right to Left, Catapult, Link

LEVEL: Beginner
The first figure can be danced turning the lady under the left hand and then changing hold, or as demonstrated in this lesson, either way the Catapult must be led with the man and lady’s right hands joined. Keep the chasse steps small in order to keep the lady close during the Catapult and a strong pull of the left hand in order to spin the lady at the end. The basic Link has been used to return to normal hold but any suitable figure could follow depending on which hand catches the lady after her spin.

Jive Week 005 Class – Videos

Dance lessons are delivered by two video tutorials for each class. One video demonstrates three moves, and one shows how to put those moves together in a dance to music. (This class is for members – please Join the Site for access to all the classes).


Example of how to put the 3 moves together to make a dance. Music was by DJ Ice “Blinding Lights” if you want to play the tune to dance to and practice. (There is no sound due to copyright).
