Tango Jive Fusion with Attitude
Add a touch of drama and class to your Modern Jive with this exclusive workshop DVD!
Amir & Kate guide you through the fundamentals and flash moves of this exciting new fusion, ensuring you stand out on the dance floor with sexy slides and fancy footwork.
With over 90 minutes of detailed instruction you are guaranteed a dancing guide you will come back to again and again.
This comprehensive DVD includes two acclaimed cabarets, plus detailed tuition on style, technique and moves.
Jango is a unique fusion of Modern Jive with Argentinean Tango. It allows you to dance intricate footwork patterns as well as turns, twists, and arm styling. You will recognise many movements from Modern Jive, but with a big difference: there is a very clear lead and follow of the footwork through out, which creates a strong connection and a smooth and elegant style. You will also recognise many tango steps and moves, but in a more open and relaxed style, using a more malleable embrace that can shift into turns, pretzels and baskets!
The important foundation moves, that allow you to mix Modern Jive moves with tango moves easily, are all here.
