Evolved in the early 1940s from a dance called Jitterbug, a form of Swing dance, jive is the faster version of the swing. This is a very boppy dance where dancers use more bouncy movements, lifting the knees and bending or rocking the hips. A lot of kicks are used. It’s one the most energetic of all the dances.
