Jiving & Novelty Events

Jive is a dance, one of the five International Latin ballroom dances.

It originated in the United States from African-Americans in the early 1940s. It is a lively and uninhibited variation of the earlier forms of Swing dance such as the Jitterbug. Jive is danced in 4/4 time, and in competition at a speed of 44 bars per minute. It differs from Rock ‘n Roll (dance) in having a syncopated chassé. Steps are counted 1, 2, 3 & 4, with 3 & 4 as the chassé.
