In this video we’ll be looking at the 2-step Jive, very similar to Rock & Roll, and a little bit slower than the Ballroom Jive.
The lesson will be broken down into easy to follow sections to start you off, and then builds up from there.
The Dance – Rock & Roll Jive
We’ll be covering the basic movement (called a Fallaway Rock), a Throwaway and then a step called the Pull Spin.
The Fallaway Rock and the Throwaway also feature in the Ballroom Jive. The Pull Spin is a Rock & Roll step but can also be adapted for your Ballroom Jive if required.
Our aim is to give you a selection of steps that can be learnt and mastered in a confined space.
The important thing is to make sure that you don’t rush your Rock & Roll Jive. The timing is quick-quick, slow, slow and you must make sure those sideways movements are slower than the back rock.
We’ve used a track called Days Far Ahead by Logan Rich for this lesson, but any Rock & Roll style track should work. Please note we had slowed the tempo down for teaching purposes:
