Jive

Jive originated in the US in the early 1930. It was popularized in 1934 by Cab Calloway as a lively and uninhibited variation of the Jitterbug. American soldiers brought the dance to Europe around 1940, where it swiftly found a following among the young. In the US the term "Swing" became the most common word used to describe the dance; whereas, the term "Jive" was adopted in the UK. In 1968 Jive was adopted as the fifth latin dance in international competitions.
