But before starting with the steps, you need to know the basic concepts about jamskate. Jam skating (or Jamskating) is a combination of dance, gymnastics, and skating, performed on roller skates. The style of skating has its roots in traditional roller disco, but has been influenced by breakdancing, artistic skating, gymnastics, and modern dance. Successful jamskaters are well practiced in these different forms and must have the ability to translate these movements while on skates. Jamskating is neither aggressive nor speed skating. This form of free-style skating is referred to by many different names: toe-dancing, spot-skating, shuffle skating, hexing, rexxing, trucking, shadow skating, crazy leg, boogie bouncing, and disco skating. These names strictly describe the style of skating, not the moves.

  1. Look for best, quiet and nearest venue, such as a roller-skating rink, be sure that your skates and gear are secured. Step by step, then gaining speed as you repeat, try to learn how to fall properly and safely. Skate forward then backward, practice stopping and turning.
  2. With your skates you can make a lot of cool things, but now let's begin to practice some easy dance movements you know or those you have seen that you think you can easily perform. Practice and try progress into the more difficult moves and dances as you go along, avoiding the more physically strenuous and dangerous. Simple toe, hip and arm movements are considered easy, such as the "Toe Jam" or the "Kick Turn."
  3. If you feel that you master easier movements and gain confidence in your control of the skates and balance of your body, proceed and move into the more difficult movements like jumping and falling on your hands and/or knees, as in the "Scissors" or the "Baby Freeze."
  4. Go forward to try the more difficult gymnastic moves, such as splitting and somersaulting, but only if you have done them before without skates. These maneuvers are sometimes called "Straight Leg Kip." or the "Weed Whacker"
  5. If you do not do jam skating correctly, it could be dangerous. It may cause serious injury. Don't forget, always use protective gear when jam skating. Maintaining your roller skates it's very important or it will cause them to deteriorate faster and may cause serious injury as well.-->
