Thanks to Pat Stott’s new dance, I have discovered Jive Aces and got their album – what a brilliant album it is, and I have found a track I wanted to write to!
The dance is called Jive Aces to Jive, Jive, Jive Aces – I hope you like it!
I believe Pat is writing another dance to another track on the album so well worth investing in!

Really easy to spot – 3 times during the song they sing a chorus which starts ‘Jive, Jive, Jive Aces’. This happens at the start of walls 3 (6 o’clock), 5 (12 o’clock) and 8 (3 o’clock). Simply dance first 32 counts only, then restart.Optional Ending
You will be facing the 3 o’clock wall at the end of the dance, simply change the last step of the left shuffle to a 1/4 step to face the home wall and then hold.
REPEAT AND ENJOY!
