E.C. Swing Vs Jive Posted by RhythmDancer 6/22/2011 11:32:00 AM
Hi everyone, i have a few simple questions for the experience dancers and hopefully i can get some words from some judges. In your opinion what is the difference between E.C. Swing and Jive? and what are you looking for when you see a competitive couple dancing Swing?
I know the music is different as well as the tempo, but as we all know there is a lot of Jive mix in the swing now days.
I personally don't want my swing to look like jive and try to keep my movement as horizontal as possible, opposite of the jive which is more vertical. At least this is my understanding of the movement.
