This comprehensive DVD includes the exclusively filmed theatre performance of the acclaimed cabarets Big Spender and All That Jazz, and includes detailed tuition on style, technique and moves normally only available in limited number workshops.

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.
