How to Do Combos of Jazz Dance Moves

Learn how to do dance move combos from jazz dance expert Liz Piccoli in this Howcast dance video.


All right I'm gonna show you a jazz advanced combo that I like to do across the floor. It goes like this. Your gonna start with your right foot, on you right foot left leg extended. Cross on the one turned out. You're gonna do a drag on the two. You're gonna do a back pas de bourree on three and four. From here you're gonna do a combination turn. Which is a double into a Fondue pencil, into a double. For more advanced students, I have some students now who can do triple, double into quads. So if you have very advanced students push them for those sequence turns, and make sure they are staying in one spot. That's the most important thing. Not going up and hoping and then hoping. You need to have that toe glued to the floor. So again it's up, down, up, down, up. From there you're gonna drag out of it. Cross your left leg and go run, run grangette. You can also do a run, run side leap, or a down axle. You can incorporate any advanced leap out of that drag turn, but for today I'm gonna come around and do a beautiful grangetay towards you. Alright let's do that a little bit slow first and then I'll do it to music. Again we're going cross, drag, back Pas de bourree' , double turn. I'm marking the turns just for sequence. So this is double, pencil, double. Drag out of it, cross and run, run grangette. And 5, 6, 7, and. Alright there's your advanced jazz combo across the floor. Good luck.
