Grease 50’s Hand Jive How To

Posted on by Holly Collins


Were you born to hand jive? In the late 50’s clubs got so full the only option for dancing was to hand jive. The movie choreographer really hit the nail on the head when he used the elements from the three tons of joy as they performed the hand jive with Johnny Otis. Have fun learning the 50’s Grease style Hand jive with Sandra Dee.

Sandra Dee

The original Sandra Dee was the 1950’s princess of Hollywood. She is also the inspiration for the movie version of Sandra Dee in Grease. Sandy was certainly the Rydell High princess and apple of Danny’s eye. While Sandy and Danny are dancing the hand jive, Vince Fontaine proclaims, “It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it’s what you do with your dancing shoes.” In this case, what you do with your dancing hands! Give it a try!

Hand Jive History

The hand jive originated in the basement of the cat’s whiskers coffee bar in London. From there it spread to America where Johnny Otis wrote his hit song “Willie & the hand jive”. He then invited Marie Adams and the Three Tons of Joy to perform the hand jive dance on his TV show in the late 50’s. It was these pieces that inspired the choreography used in Grease to the Sha na na hit “Born to Hand Jive.”

Hand Jive how to use “Willie and the Hand Jive.”

Knee pat & hand clap

Count 1,2 pat your knees or thighs twice.
Count 3,4 clap your hands twice.

Criss cross hands

Count 5,6 Cross right hand over left hand and pulse two times.
Count 7,8 Cross left hand over right hand and pulse two times.

Hammer fists

Count 3,4 Cross left over right hand and hammer two times.

Hitchhiker thumbs up

Count 5,6 point your right thumb over your right shoulder two times.
Count 7,8 pint your left thumb over your left shoulder two times.

This sequence can be done on the beat or at double time.

Hand jive line dance how to use “Born to hand jive.”

Without sports: 6 types of dances for weight loss with video

Are you worried in advance how to get back in shape? Dancing is the most pleasant, emotional and interesting way to a beautiful figure. But what kind of dances will help us find the perfect body the fastest?

Zumba

Zumba is not really a dance, it's more of a dance fitness. This is an aerobic workout based on rhythmic movements performed to incendiary music. It is a mixture of salsa, cumbia, flamenco, calypso, mamba, rumba. This is not only useful and energy-intensive, but also really fun!

Effect. Training involves all muscles, but the main load falls on the lower body - legs and buttocks. Zumba develops plasticity, flexibility, endurance, trains the respiratory and cardiovascular systems and, of course, improves mood.

How much can you burn in an hour of training? 400–500 kcal.

Difficulties. None! In fact, this is the only type of dance for which you do not need any special physical training. At the end of the lesson, you do not need to combine the learned chords into a beautiful dance, you can improvise, and the coach will not force you to perfectly repeat all his movements. You just dance, rejoice and get rid of extra pounds.

Here is a little workout so you know what zumba really is:

Pole dance

Pole dance (pole dance) will allow you not only to relax and surprise your loved one, but also to lose weight. Classes include all types of load: power, aerobic, stretching, acrobatics. Pole dance is not a striptease, as many people think, but only its imitation. The main emphasis here is on the technique of execution, and it is worth noting that it is not easy.

Effect. Pole training tightens all muscle groups (the muscles of the arms and shoulder girdle work, the abs and back muscles, legs and buttocks, as well as the calf muscles), improve flexibility, stretching, transform posture and gait. Exercise has a positive effect on the functioning of the cardiovascular system.

After just a few sessions, you will notice that you have become more graceful, feminine, self-confident. Pole dance helps to get rid of complexes, to feel attractive and sexy.

How much can you burn in an hour of training? 450-450 kcal.

Difficulties . You cannot master pole dancing in one, three or even five lessons. This is hard work that requires perseverance, aspiration, and patience. A beginner can start training, but it’s still better to have a good stretch right away. In addition, if you are a shy person in life, then you will need to force yourself to get rid of awkwardness and start dancing. But believe me: a beautiful and seductive body is worth your effort!

This short pole dance video will prove to you that pole dance is so much more than just an erotic dance.

Belly dance

Belly dance is one of the most sexy and sensual dances. Do you think it does not contribute to weight loss, since only the stomach is involved in it, and all movements are smooth? In fact, many muscle groups work during belly dancing, and this is a very effective way to tighten your figure and lose unnecessary pounds.

Effect. Of course, the abdominal muscles have the hardest time of all. The oblique muscles work especially actively, which can be difficult to reach even in the gym. In addition, the muscles of the shoulder girdle and back are strengthened, beautiful hips are formed, extra centimeters are removed from the waist. It is believed that belly dancing has a beneficial effect on the female reproductive system, and also normalizes metabolism. And of course, a woman performing a belly dance feels attractive, desirable and beautiful!

How much can you burn in an hour of training? 350-400 kcal.

Difficulties . Yes, belly dancing is far from the easiest dance direction, but at the same time, the load on the joints and ligaments during classes is minimal, which means that a woman of any age and any weight can master this dance. You can dance at least every day - you do not need rest between workouts to restore muscles.

Mesmerizing belly dance video:

Irish Step

If your main problem is fat legs, try Irish step. These dances will replace your running, jump rope, and step aerobics. During the dance, the legs actively work, the torso remains practically motionless, and the arms perform only smooth movements. All types of Irish dances are performed to traditional Irish melodies: reels, jigs, hornpipes.

Effect. This is the perfect dance for those who want to really pump up their legs. Relief, tightened, slender hips, calves, buttocks - this is the main result of Irish step classes. In addition, this type of dance helps to pump up the press, correct posture, develop the respiratory system and strengthen the heart muscle. The dance is very rhythmic, which means that at each workout you will have to sweat a lot, but, as you know, not only harmful substances, but also extra pounds go away with sweat.

How much can you burn in an hour of training? 500-600 kcal.

Difficulties. Irish music is rhythmic and requires precise steps, so if you don't know how to feel the rhythm, it can be difficult to keep up with the pace of the dance.

Irish step is a serious dance that cannot be learned in a couple of practices. Keep in mind that you will master the Irish step faster if you have never practiced other dance styles. The fact is that classical choreographic training sometimes prevents the body from remembering the positions of Irish dances, so it’s better to start learning from scratch.

When you dance just like the girl in the video, you will not have a single extra gram left:

Latin American dances

Incendiary, energetic, emotional Latin American dances are definitely what you need to quickly burn fat . Bachata, salsa, cha-cha-cha, rumba, jive - the choice is huge! Fatigue, weakness, bad mood - these concepts simply do not exist when you dance salsa or rumba. In addition, most of the Latin American dances are performed in pairs, which means that during the dance you can’t be lazy so as not to let your partner down.

Effect. During the training, all muscle groups are involved, but the emphasis is on the abs, hips and buttocks. You will learn to keep your back, monitor coordination, move plastically and feel your body. Latin American dances will tighten the figure and help get rid of extra pounds. And of course, incendiary dances are the perfect cure for the blues!

How much can you burn in an hour of training? 400–500 kcal.

Difficulties. Not everyone can perform movements at such a frantic pace as required by Latin American dances. You have to give 100% to see the result.

Take a look, would you like to dance salsa just like professional dancers do?

We advise you to pay attention to bachata. Like all Latin American dances, it helps to open up, shake off complexes, strengthens the cardiovascular system and keeps the body in good shape.

Bachata is also quite simple in choreography (which is especially important for beginner dancers). So much so that even people with some physical features can perform it. Actually, bachata is known as a healing dance that helps strengthen muscles after injuries.

Flamenco

A dance that makes not only the legs thin, but the whole body. A passionate Spanish dance, flamenco sets a very fast pace, so that the process of losing weight will not seem monotonous and boring to you. In flamenco classes you will gain self-confidence, achieve harmony of soul and body and feel what it means to be truly free!

Effect. Flamenco classes teach you how to beat a fraction, keep your back straight and arch your hands. After a couple of months of training, the hips and buttocks lose weight, and the calf muscles acquire a beautiful relief. Plus, dancing will get rid of excess fat in the arms and neck. Turning and twisting while dancing works your back muscles, so you get great posture and say goodbye to spinal problems. Flamenco classes will make you more graceful, plastic and light.

How much can you burn in an hour of training? 300–400 kcal.

Difficulties . Flamenco, like any dance, requires discipline and perseverance. All body movements and positions are quite natural, you just need to understand the principle - and you can master flamenco in just a few months. And get a beautiful, seductive body.

Now look how real Spaniards dance their national dance:

Many girls and women during the autumn and winter gain extra pounds and fat in the hips and abdomen, and to remove it, it is not enough to go on a vegetable diet and eat right . In order to tighten the stomach and build in the hips, you need to do oriental dances.

What do belly dance lessons do at home?

Bellydance - oriental belly dance , which recently "broke" all records of popularity not only in fitness clubs, but also in dance schools . Regular dance lessons make it possible:

Find your style for almost any figure.

Strengthen the abdominal muscles.

To feel movement in the hips, you need to purchase a belt with jingling coins, sequins or a regular chiffon scarf.

Regular exercise will make the spine more flexible , work out all the muscles and shape the waist.

Belly dancing is an excellent workout for the entire vestibular apparatus.

Bellydance can be practiced both in group classes, and alone, with any level of physical fitness, using online lessons.

The duration of classes at the dance school is two hours, and at home you can practice at any time convenient for you.

Belly dance includes many styles, such as classical, folk, Turkish, Persian, Egyptian, etc. All parts of the body are involved in a beautiful dance, and thanks to the smooth movements of the arms, legs and abdomen, you can change your figure beyond recognition, significantly lose weight and correct your posture.

How to effectively lose weight and correct the waist in the abdomen?

When my waist begins to "round" and the clothes become tight, then the hula hoop (hoop) comes to my aid, thanks to which all the muscles in the waist and lower back are involved.

  • The hula hoop is convenient because it can be turned both at home and on the street.
  • To get the maximum effect from your workouts, you need to choose a weighted hoop for yourself.
  • It is enough to twist the hoop for 15 minutes a day to get your first result in two weeks.
  • Hula hoop exercises improve posture and the functioning of the cardiovascular system.
  • The hoop can be twisted not only on the waist, but also on the arms and legs.

My advice: Doing sports at home will bring results only with daily morning exercises, which are enough to perform for 15 minutes, and if you twist the hula hoop to the music, then such exercises will become a pleasant "habit" that will bear fruit.
