Jive and Swing Dance Classes
Although we tend to think of the Jive as originating in the 50s, the dance actually started to emerge more than two decades earlier. During the 20s such dances as the Turkey Trot and the Charleston developed and other dances emerged from these as the moves got wilder and the music got faster. The Texas Tommy or Breakaway developed where couples moved apart and came back together again. When Charles Lindenberg piloted his famous solo flight across the Atlantic, the dance known as Lindy-Hop was named in his honour. Other variations which have emerged over time include the Jitterbug, the West Coast Swing, the American Swing and Rock'n' Roll. The common element amongst all of these guises of this style of dance is the distinctive carefree character of the six beat musical rhythm.
