It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)

Charleston to Hemsby?

I’m talking about Jive!!

Hemsby is host to the annual Rock n Roll…..and Hot Rods weekend in East Anglia.

The Jive has a history that goes back to the early 20th Century. Back to the Charleston and tap dancing.

A mixture of Charleston and Tap was fused into a dance called the Lyndy Hop. The music danced to was swing. However before the term Jive was used ‘Swing’ bacame the popular name for a type of dance. But many dances were enjoyed with swing music, Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Balboa, Shag, East and West coast swing, Boogie Woogie.
