Are there any jive teachers or experience dancers who could advise on my jive dilemma? I’ve been learning six-beat jive but, while I’ve mastered the rock step, I’m really struggling with increasingly complex footwork for showy ‘steppy’ moves – which is going beyond what I want to do. I’m told the ‘rock and roll’ style of jive (which seems involve doing a ‘choo-choo train’ style motion with your partner’s hands, and without the rock step) is not only easier but is more popular at clubs, etc. But I was also told my rock step, which has now become almost automatic, will hinder me in rock and roll jive. My dilemma is whether I should continue learning the six-beat or learn the rock and roll style instead. Is the rock and roll style really simpler and more popular? Am I just going to confuse myself by trying to learn a different style? Or can you mix and match? And does choosing one style or another mean you can only dance with women who’ve learnt the same style? I’m not a serious clubber dedicated to the rocking scene but rather I just want to be able to dance at local events to music that makes me want to move!
