Solo Jazz

An ample selection of classic Solo Jazz moves categorized by rhythm

Full Time

Jazz steps that use all or mostly full-time rhythm. Weight changes occur on every beat of the music.

Half Time

Jazz steps that change weight every other beat of the music. These moves will challenge your ability to balance whilst playing with the space inbetween the steps. 

Triple Step

These jazz steps incorporate the triple-step rhythm. It can also called a swing triple. It can incorporate full weight changes, touches or kicks. 

4 Count

These jazz steps use approximate one bar of jazz music (4 counts) before making a weight shift. However, there’s plenty of time for complexity of movement.

Multi Rhythm

We recommend starting with single rhythm steps before attempting these, but don’t worry, we won’t send the dance police if you decided to jump right into these moves first.
