Fox, Harry Hamlin, Joey Lawrence, Mario Lopez, and Emmitt Smith.)
Tonight Dances are
Jive is a rhythmical and swinging dance which was influenced by the Boogie, Rock & Roll, African/American Swing and the Lindyhop. The roots of the Jive are in New York's Harlem.
It is the fastest of the Latin dances and should show lots of kicks and flicks and twirling of the woman. Although on first impression it might look like the feet are all over the place in every direction, the feet/legs should actually be under the body and the knees should always be close together.
Jive doesn't move around the dance floor like other dances.
Moves to Watch For:
The basic movement is chassez to the left chassez to the right and a rock step (changing weight from one foot to the other).
Look out for the flick, ball, change movement - where you stand on one foot and kick down at the same time.
Look out for the distinctive kick action in jive where toes are always pointed to the ground when kicking.
Watch out for the American Spin - when the man lets go of the lady and lets her spin on her own.
The gauchos (cowboys) of Argentina wore chaps that hardened from the foam and sweat of the horse's body, causing them to walk with flexed knees. Of a night they would go to crowded night clubs and ask ladies of the night to dance but since the gaucho hadn't showered, the lady would dance in the crook of the man's right arm, holding her head back. Her right hand was held low on his left hip, close to his pocket, looking for a payment for dancing with him.
No rise and fall in the steps. This should be a very level, flat dance. The legs are therefore always slightly flexed (i.e. the knees should be slightly bent at all times).
Moves to Watch:
The Tango is a very emotional dance and this should be conveyed.
Must see lots of clipped movements.
The action must always be staccato.
Look out for sharp head turning and stops.
The hold is different in the tango. The man's left arm is more towards head level.
The general hold is far more compact and the couple are much tighter together.
Walks - Should be done with the heels leading.
Rock turns - the dancers should rock while turning.
Look out for the Links - these are the sharp movements in-between the walks (the head turns from the girl). These are also known as staccato movements.
And now let see What happend on the Dance Floor Tonight.
