Following the change of popular music in the end of the FOURTIES from BIG BAND SWING to RHYTHM & BLUES, ROCKABILLY and finally ROCK & ROLL, the (most famous
SWING dance) LINDY HOP became more simplified in the U.K. and was referred (to) as JIVING.
The ROCKABILLY JIVE (as it's called nowadays) has a unique rhythm, motion, and emphasis - a 'feel' - that is not captured by any other dance style. It may be danced
in several different forms without using a back-step - this marks the ROCKABILLY JIVE as distinctly different from other dance styles. With a very basic step it's very accessible, easy to
learn, perfect for dancing to fast music from the FIFTIES and looks super-cool.
