I worked with the Oklahoma City Arts Council to produce this series of Beginning Jazz Dance lessons with instructor Samantha Haynes. These lessons are designed for all ages and are meant to be watched in order as dancers build upon the moves in previous videos.
In this first lesson in Beginning Jazz Dance, instructor Samantha Haynes leads dancers through Step Touch and Ball Change movements.
Lesson 2 in Beginning Jazz Dance! Dance instructor Samantha Haynes leads a lesson on the Triple Step and Jazz Square movements.
In the third Beginning Jazz Dance lesson series, dance instructor Samantha Haynes teaches the Battement and Three Step Turn movements. Be sure to watch the first two lessons in this series as Samantha puts all of the movements together for the final dance at the end.
