Hi all: I was wondering if any knowledgeable folk could help me with the mechanics and technique of proper jive basic. When are you on the ball of the foot, and when are you on your heel? (I know you put your heel down on the rock step, but what about at the end of each triple step?) How much weight transfer do you do on the triple step? (I feel like I just lightly tap my toes on the floor, instead of actually putting weight on the ball like I'm supposed to. But how do I transfer weight during the triple step without slowing down?) What do you do with your hips? (Isn't there supposed to be a swinging action?) How do you reverse momentum going left to right without fighting momentum? When are your knees straight and when are they bent, and when you do bend them how much bend is there? I have no problem with jive kicks (I can keep them up forever), but as soon as I start doing basics, I get tired out, which tells me that I'm doing something wrong. If someone could break it down for me step by step, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
