In Ballroom dancing, Jive is a dance style in 4/4 time that originated in the United States from African-Americans in the early 1930′s. It was originally presented to the public as ‘Jive’ in 1934 by Cab Calloway. It is a lively and uninhibited variation of the Jitterbug, a form of Swing dance. Many of its basic patterns are similar to those of the East Coast Swing with the major difference of highly syncopated rhythm of the Triple Steps. Women traditionally wear skirts and attire is often circa 1930's/1940's.
