Welcome to the Jazz Roots Bank project

This project was developed by a group of passionate (not professional) dancers, with the goal of building a dedicated and involved community.
We worked to compile examples and references on vernacular jazz steps to make a reliable source of knowledge, accessible to everyone.
We have tried to make it as easy as possible for people to share their resources and access information.

Before going through the site, we encourage you to read About This Project in order to better understand the choices we’ve made and the how we proceeded with the development of this project.

You can then search our list of jazz steps by name and view the videos or gifs we created, as well as any video, historical or didactic references we have found.
Happy browsing! 😉
