International Style Latin Jive
 
Brief Description
 
Jive is a fast moving, highly energetic Latin American 
dance. Deriving from the Lindy Hop. Jive is a non 
progressive dance. You wouldn't want to move too far, 
not at this speed. With 42 - 44 Bars or 168 - 176 Beats 
per minute. Its quick steps and very fast music. 
No wonder Jive is so well loved. This dance originated 
from the Jitterbug and Boogie Woogie which were 
popularised by American and Canadian servicemen 
during the 40’s. It was originally banned from 
ballrooms for being too wild and abandoned but 
was made into an acceptable dance with figures 
that could be taught and was renamed the Jive.
