Jive Lesson Notes

Robert Burby 09/16/2010

Jive figures begin with a back rock whereas East Coast Swing ends with a back rock. It's usually a six count. The legs are dramatically raised at the knees and you stand more vertical compared to East Cost Swing. We did Swivels which begins with a left foot back rock and a pivoting action of the feet for six counts. On the seventh you back rock to end the Swivel. The man's right and left hands help guide the woman side to side. This routine ended in a side to side figure with the woman passing first across the front of the man, then across and behind, then again across and in front and finally across and behind usually ending in a woman's turn.
