What is Jango?
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 on this amazing DVD.
