1 in stock.
When the GI's came over to the UK during WWII, they brought with them a great dance, which quickly caught on amongst the young people in the dancehalls of the time.
Jive dancing has been enjoying a comeback for several years now, as people are rediscovering the joy of dancing together again, as well as the infectious music of the 1940s and 50s that this is danced to.
Colin Tenn and Janneke Saebo have featured as dancers in the BBCs Last of the Blonde Bombshells, Last Orders, Lucky Jim, Piccadilly Jim and Channel 4's 1940s House.
Through their courses and workshops on the South Coast, they have taught thousands of people to Jive. Their step-by-step approach and emphasis on individual styling and having fun makes it easy to follow for all levels.
In this DVD, each move is broken down and demonstrated in detail, and after each section, the moves are shown in a real dance setting to live music, so you can get a feel for the timing and see how the moves can be put together.
