In ballroom dancing, the jive is a dance style that originated in the United States
from African-Americans in the early 1930s. It was originally presented to the public
in 1934 by Cab Calloway. It is a lively and uninhibited variation of the Jitterbug,
a form of Swing dance.
The Social Country Jive is a much easier and lighter version of the original Jive,
it evolved in the country ballrooms in rural area, developing a unique style that
varies from area to area. Still counting on the 6 beat rhythm.
