For nearly a century, people have been enjoying the fast, energetic dance of the Jive. Nearly every generation to experience the Jive has left an identifiable handprint by altering the methods, the rhythms, the footwork, or the partners. Within this version of dance, there are three subsections that are often found; lovers of the style, music, or fashion of the traditional Jive, those who have discovered it through Ballroom Dancing and often refer to it as ‘Ballroom Jive’, and those who have discovered it through local swing clubs, where they teach a much more modern version of the Jive, known as the French Jive, Le Roc, or Ceroc. As generations of different musical tastes have grown and evolved, the style and movements of the Jive have evolved as well, but the core fundamentals and appeal has never faltered.
