Jive & Swing First Dance

Jive and its sister dance, Swing are dances with a relaxed style and position. They are a crowd pleaser dances. It is easy to learn Jive because of its simple rhythmical footwork. Once you learn the basics, it is easy to dance to from any classic or modern Jive playlist. It is a fast dance and it uses little to medium space.

Jive & Swing First Dance
As a wedding first dance, Jive and Swing work a treat as they allow good freedom of movement. Jive also gets the guests excited so they would want to rush to the floor to join you. It works best when the wedding dress is not too long. Even so, the bride will be fine by moving on the spot. The groom can keep his jacket on or take it off; I would say take it off.

Jive & Swing First Dance Tip
Jive and Swing involve a swing movement of the upper body which when done excessively it looks rather unattractive, and this takes the attention away from the wedding dress. As a groom, by keeping your body in a normal upright position you would look the part and also make your bride the centre of the attention.
