Terence. I always thought that with the acrobatics that went with Jitterbug the stance had to be bent forward at the waist. When the lady flew onto the mans left side and without touching the floor to the right side and then through the legs and back again. Try that standing up straight.This is what I watched on a program on the cable which was about the time a travelling group of dark people were performing in clubs through the US. The films were as was and were not studio movies.. Todays Jive . I think it is always taught today that the weight is forward over the balls of the feet. Very rarely would the weight be anywhere else and the knees are not straight. Which is simular to Jitterbug.
