Dance Tip 'Learning the Footwork '
venues do not teach the footwork to Modern Jive, UKA qualified instructors
have to learn and be able to teach both the Basic footwork for the men and
the Lady's part. The footwork creates a smoother dance, raises the ability
of the dancer and helps with timing, tension and compression - it also stops the
bounce motion that is often seen in Modern Jive enabling the dancers to dance to
a wider variety in tempos of music. There are a lot of instructors that
each have their own ideas on Modern Jive - if you want to learn the
footwork learn the correct footwork approved by the UKA.
