I bought this DVD when I and my partner had had only about 10 lessons and had foolishly allowed ourselves to be entered in a Xmas dance competition. We were naturally panicking, but with the help of this DVD we were able to put together a pretty reasonable routine.
You are likely to cover all the moves shown in this DVD in the first six months of any modern jive class, but where the DVD comes in handy is to look at points of technique, especially in slow motion. I find that we still watch the DVD occasionally to try and improve the style of some of our moves because the couple performing on the DVD are SO stylish and accurate in their movements.
All in all a good buy for beginners wanting to speed up their learning (and with room to practise the moves at home :-} ).

This is good both for complete beginners and those who have been doing it a bit. It has the starter moves but i was pleasantly surprise to see intermidiate moves. So even though i bought this to teach my beginner boyfriend I myself found it a useful recap as well as pickinh up a fe new moves!

I bought this to use at school to teach 50 kids to jive for our production of Grease. Absolutely fantastic, we managed at least half of the DVD in three weeks. The kids loved it too! I would recommend it to anyone who would love to dance at any level. The soundtrack is great too and I have now bought that as well! Buy it now! You won't regret it , it too much fun!

Make sure you grab a partner.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
We have always envied couples who could jive with confidence so about 4 years ago we purchased the "How to Jive" on video tape. We made some progress but soon other factors delayed progress, also the video player packed in. About six month ago we joined a beginners jive class and the instructer recommended the "How to Jive DVD" remembering how good it was we immediately purchased the DVD. What a difference technology makes, the DVD has the same material but it is so easy to review the different routines during practice ensuring you can go over and over it until it sinks in, so much so that we have made good progress, well, we think so!
We would recommendit to any budding Jiver! PS. we are both retired and it's so good at keeping one young.

For Beginners this is an excellent DVD which shows a good selection of moves to learn.
The moves are clearly shown and explained from first principles.
I recommend this DVD for anyone who wants to learn Jive/Ceroc.

This is an excellent DVD with clear and helpful instructions. No prior knowledge is assumed, and the instructors go from square one. The directions are plainly explained, so that novices know exactly what to do. The dancers demonstrate very clearly, and then there is a section of music to practice the different moves. The moves were easy to master, and we progressed very quickly. We felt like pros after a couple of sessions!

I always wanted to learn how to dance and this seems to give me a very good starting point.
The explanations are easy to follow and the dancing itself is fascinating to watch.
