Jive and Boogie (powerpoint presentation)

  1. 1. J I V E
  2. 2. WHAT IS “JIVE”  In Ballroom dancing, Jive is a dance style in 4/4 time that originated in the United States from African- Americans in the early 1930s. 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. Glenn Miller introduced his own jive dance in 1938 with the song "Doin' the Jive" which never caught on.  Jive is one of the five International Latin dances. In competition it is danced at a speed of 176 beats per minute, although in some cases this is reduced to between 128 and 160 beats per minute.  Many of its basic patterns are similar to these of the East Coast Swing with the major difference of highly syncopated rhythm of the Triple Steps (Chasses), which use straight eighths in ECS and hard swing in Jive.
  3. 3. Style: International Latin Music: Very fast swing music Meter: 4/4 Tempo: 176 beats per minute Basic Rhythm: 1 2, 1 a2, 1 a2
  4. 4. HISTORY OF JIVE  Originating in the United States in the 1940s, Jive was influenced by the Boogie, Rock & Roll, African/American Swing and Lindyhop.
  5. 5. CHARACTERISTICS OF JIVE  Jive and East Coast Swing share many figures, as well as the same music style and tempo. The basic look and feel of Jive is lots and lots of energy, with the legs portraying a pumping action. Both the East Coast Swing and basic Jive consist of two triple steps and a rock step. The Jive differs in that the count begins with the rock step, which is counted "1,2." The two triple steps are counted "3 and 4" and "5 and 6."
  6. 6. JIVE MUSIC EXAMPLES  This excellent Latin Jams series of dance music CD's offers several Jive tracks. "Little Bitty Pretty One" - Latin Jam 1  "The House Is Rockin" - Latin Jam 2  "Get Over It " - Latin Jam 3  "Beretta" - Latin Jam 4  "Roadside Jump " - Latin Jam 5
  7. 7. EXAMPLE OF A “JIVE COSTUME”
  8. 8. JIVE FEATURED STEPS
  9. 9. JIVE ACTION  Jive is a very happy, boppy, energetic dance, with plenty of knee-lifting, bending, and rocking of the hips. The fastest of the Latin dances, Jive incorporates lots of kicks and flicks, even twirling of the woman, and doesn't move around the dance floor like other dances. Although Jive dancers may appear to be moving their feet haphazardly in every direction, the feet are actually well-controlled under the body with the knees close together.

  39. 39. JIVE ( VIDEO )
  40. 40. WHAT IS “BOOGIE”  Boogie dance, or boogie-woogie, is a form of swing dancing. It is called boogie-woogie in Europe, but this dance is more commonly known as East Coast swing in the United States. It's most often seen now in dance competitions, which are run by the World Rock 'n' Roll Confederation.
  41. 41. HISTORY OF BOOGIE  Boogie-woogie was originally called "barrelhouse" dancing. During the 1950s, today's boogie-woogie would have been known as "rock 'n' roll." Although the dance can go with boogie-woogie music, it's more often paired with rock music. Because rock 'n' roll dance was already established in dance competitions, boogie-woogie had to find an alternate label. It adopted a name based on the music with which it was often paired: fast- paced, piano boogie-woogie.
  42. 42. THE FACTS  Swing dance dates back to the 1920s, when the black community began dancing the lindy hop and Charleston to jazz music. When the Savoy Ballroom opened in New York in 1926, it became the swing center of the world. In the 1930s, a new style called the jitterbug was introduced, followed in the1950s by the boogie-woogie, or East Coast swing.
  43. 43. FAMOUS CONTACTS  In 1938, Cab Calloway and The Whitey's Lindy Hoppers performed at the Cotton Club Review. The Hoppers danced to a fast blues song called "A Lesson in Jive." This was the legendary start of the boogie dance. Boogie dance is best danced with rockabilly music, as performed by such artists as Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis.
  44. 44. FEATURES  The step variation for boogie dance is six or eight count with sharp, quick movements. Boogie-woogie can be danced in social situations (mostly in Europe), or in competitions (worldwide). As a competitive dance, boogie- woogie is a "led" dance, without any choreography or acrobatic movement. Boogie- woogie can be slow or fast. When fast beats are used, boogie-woogie often moves into East Coast swing, Hollywood style and jitterbug.
  45. 45. MISCONCEPTIONS  Boogie-woogie is a distinct form of swing dance. Although it originated in the '50s after other forms of swing, it does have its own set of steps. Many people confuse it with the lindy hop, which it closely resembles. The two are not interchangeable, however. Another misconception is that as a form of swing dancing, boogie-woogie must be fast paced. Boogie-woogie dance and music can, however, be slow.

  47. 47. EXAMPLE OF A BOOGIE COSTUME FOR MEN
  48. 48. BASIC BOOGIE DANCE STEPS
  49. 49. THE BEGINNING  Start with your feet next to each other and stand facing the center of the room. Step back with your left foot and step in place with your left foot. Bring your left foot forward and tap with your toe beside your right foot, then step in place with your left foot. Tap with your right toe and step in place with your right foot. As you tap your toe and step with each foot, try to turn your feet out a little so your toes are pointing a little away from your body. The rhythm should sound like this: "step, step, tap-step, tap-step, step, step, tap-step, tap-step". Gradually pick up speed as you feel comfortable doing these steps.
  50. 50. THE TURN  Do the same steps as described in the first section. Add a turn by taking advantage of the "tap, step" patterns. Step back with your left foot, step in place with your right foot, and tap your left foot beside your right foot. Instead of stepping in place with your left foot, turn your body to the right and place your left foot to the right and at a 90-degree angle. You will be facing the back of the room. Tap with your right foot and as you step with your right foot, continue turning clockwise so that you are now with your right shoulder toward the center of the room. Step back with your right foot and continue turning clockwise so that you are facing the center of the room. As you continue with the pattern by tapping and stepping with your left foot, turn counter clockwise so that you will end up turning completely around the other way and end up facing front again.
  51. 51.  One way to think of the turn is that it is similar to a yo-yo on a string. Once you spin the yo-yo in one direction it stops, then begins turning in the opposite direction. With this turn you go in one direction, stop, then turn back in the direction you came. Practice the turn until you can do it up to tempo.
  52. 52. ADD A PARTNER  While the man does the basic boogie steps back and forth described in section one, the woman can do the turn described in section two. As the man lifts his arm, the woman can turn beneath it, mirroring his steps and adding the turn as she does so.
