Jive Dance Lessons

A quick swing dance played out to big band music with lots of kicks, energy, and fun personality. Could be described as a fun version of the Jitterbug. Started on the club scene in the 1940’s US and now developed into today’s International Latin dance. The Jive is an amalgamation of moves taken from Salsa, Swing, Tango, and more.

Instruction is delivered by easy-to-follow video tutorials. There are two videos for each class, a DEMO video demonstrating three moves, and a DANCE video showing how to put those moves together with the music. Our expert teachers will take you step-by-step through each move, with timing, and lead and follow instructions, and show how to join the three moves. Over time, and with practice, you will expand the number of moves in your repertoire, and improve your knowledge and understanding of how to put the moves together seamlessly as you dance.
