Dances for 2017

Saturday Dances.  Saturday is the main day of the Jamboree. The Jam dance list for Saturday is made up of the 8 Primary (new) Dances plus this year’s 31 Favorite Dances.

  • The Primary Dances (or this year’s new dances) are the 8 or 9 dances selected each year for the Jam after the Workshop in April. Check Nikki Simpson’s website or the Workshop page for more info on this year’s new dances.
  • The Favorite Dances are selected from the past Jam dances and are usually chosen each year in December or early January based on a vote by the Jam instructors representing their dancers.

2017 Primary and Favorite Dances. The dances are listed below or click here for a printable list of the 2017 Dances.  The New and Favorite Dances are listed in alphabetical order. Instead of 30 Favorites, there are 31 dances this year because of a tie for the last place. We hope your favorite dance is on the list!  In the list below, click on the name of the dance for a step sheet. Most of the links are to Copperknob where you’ll usually find a video with the step sheet. For a video, you might also try or the choreographer’s website. Kickit has an extensive list of choreographer websites, as does the World Line Dance Newsletter.
