Introduction: A Newcomer level move for Jive.
Frame: Standard. Count: 1-2, Hip-Bump! Triple Step. 1-2.
Leaders and Followers: Leaders and Followers move the same, just mirrored since you're bumping each other. Execute Fallaway Throwaway first.

Instructions (Leader Perspective)
To go into Hip Bump, you obviously can't just do it from closed frame position. So, execute a fallaway throwaway first. Instructions will begin from where you end the fallaway throwaway.
You are now in open position, weight on your right leg. You are connected to your partner via your left hand (follower's right hand).
1-2: Execute a rock step. Left foot steps back, etc. Do take a small step. Your partner is also stepping backwards, so small steps will prevent overstretching of your arms.
Hip-Bump: Normally, the count here is Tri-ple-Step or 3-Ah-4. But, you're doing a hip bump. The Hip covers the 3-Ah, the Bump is just the 4. Breaking it down below.
Hip: You're facing your partner currently, weight on right leg, having just finished a rock step. Left foot steps forward and you rotate to your right 90 degrees during the step. You should now be facing the same direction as your partner.
Bump: Imagine the finish of a triple step, where one leg comes up and the other leg straightens. That's what you want to do here. In addition, your hip and the follower's hips should "bump" into each other. Your free hand (right, in this instance) comes straight up, Granger-style when you really really really want to answer that question.

Triple Step: The bump is very quick and occurs in an instance on count 4. After that, you disengage via a triple step and now face each other again.
1-2: Rock Step. You can now go from open position to whatever you like.

Note: 1 hip bump is enough. 2 is pushing it. 3 is too many. Stick to 1 or 2 hip bumps at a time.

Instructions (Follower Perspective)
Same as the leader, but opposite direction.

Tips and Tricks
  • OverBumping: Don't slam into your partner. Yes, you're bumping hips. But that doesn't mean you hurl your entire weight into the bump. The force of the bump is less horizontal, more vertical. After all, at the end of a triple step when you're coming up from your dip and going up, same thing happens here.
  • Height Difference: Often times, hips don't line up if the leader and follower are of different heights. In that case, work with what you can and do not overbump. Whether the leader is taller or the follower is taller, you don't want to bowl over your partner.
  • Rock-Step Stretch: This doesn't just apply here, but to all of Jive. Whenever you execute a move where both you and your partner move away from each other, take small steps. Big steps = overstretching. Let me tell you, it's painful to both parties.
