SwingJive is the easiest way to start dancing with your partner to your favourite swing, rock'n'roll and rhythm'n'blues music. The series of 6 Swing Jive courses, starting from Absolute Beginners, followed by Intermediate courses "A" and "B" and ending with three Intermediate Plus courses "1", "2" and "3" were designed to allow people who have never danced before a simple and progressive way to learn. Following these DVDs will get you dancing in no time.

The moves taught on The Swing Dance Company’s SwingJive courses fit to a wide variety of music styles, but principally jive is associated with swing and rock'n'roll music. These DVDs offer instruction on SwingJive. The tuition includes introduction to the basic 6-beat and Charleston rhythms, there is more footwork than in the Absolute Beginners DVD but this is not a lindy hop instructional DVD. SwingJive is easier to learn than lindy hop, following The Swing Dance Company’s SwingJive courses acts as a solid foundation for many people who later learn lindy hop.

Thousands of The Swing Dance Company’s Instructional DVDs have sold worldwide. With improved video production compared to the Absolute Beginners DVD, tuition on this Intermediate “A” level DVD is again provided by The Swing Dance Company owners and lead teacher trainers Brooke and Debbie Garvey. The tuition is broken down so that viewers can see different angles, see the moves taught slowly, danced with a count, danced with memory words and danced to music.

There are two Swing Dance Company SwingJive courses at the Intermediate level, Course A and Course B. Each course offers different material but with content at approximately the same level of difficulty and can be taken in either order. It is recommended that both courses are completed before attempting any of the 3 courses at the Intermediate Plus level.
