Jam Skating In Quarantine
After receiving a bunch of suggestions from everyone for our previous post Quarantine on Quadskates we decided to write up a second post for Jam Skating!
So many of you have said that you are LOVING the jam skating tutorials popping up right now. Jam skating is an activity that you can do on your own in a relatively small space. It's my easiest dose of exercise right now and dancing it out really helps boost my energy levels for the day.
Everyone has their own style when it comes to Jam Skating so the most important thing to keep in mind is to get into your groove and just have fun with it! Jam skating is just like regular dancing but with your skates so put your favourite tunes on and get ready to bust a roll with these eight jam skaters!
Check out our previous post here
1. Roller Skate Victoria
Our friends over at Roller Skate Victoria have started up an online community-based dance academy for people to watch and post Jam Skating videos. They also regularly host some free live dance aerobics classes via Facebook live every Tuesday and Saturday at 6pm PST. They earn bonus points in our books for being a Canadian group located out of Vancouver Island!
Located out of Australia, the Rollerfit group has been creating daily Instagram Live Videos giving lessons for all levels of jam skating. The videos are accessible on Instagram for 24 hours and are hosted by a variety of amazing skaters. The daily schedule of classes is listed via Instagram ahead of time to let you plan your schedule accordingly. Their practices don't require a lot of space (this is a big bonus for all of us skating in our living rooms) and they get you grooving no matter your skating level!
3. Classic SK8 Crew
Classic SK8 Crew’s youtube page has so many great videos that break down all kinds of basic and advanced jam skating moves for you to try. They also have great videos you can follow and help you with your breakdancing/ jam skating goals.
4. Soulful Fitness & Quadsk8
I love this page for when I need some jam skating goals/inspiration. This is a group located out of the Netherlands that has such a unique and creative style of Jam Skating. You can check them out on YouTube or on Instagram.
5. Deez Skates
Deez Skates has a bunch of tutorials for both inline and quad skaters. Their videos do a great job of breaking down different moves and teaching you how to build on a bunch of individual jam skating skills.
6. Estrojen with Moxi Skates
Estrojen is creating weekly skate training videos, especially those for skating small space. As well, there are daily tutorials about the ins and outs of different products and important skating tips like how not to get hurt or first time skating.
7. Sure-Grip and Morgan Weske
Morgan Weske and Sure-Grip International join together to put on live jam skating classes via Instagram. Check out Sure-Grip's social media for details on the next live class.
If you are looking for some skate inspiration (skate-spiration?) Gossipskate75 has started #ONEMOVEONEDAY and as you might have guessed... they show you a skate move to work on every day!
If you’re looking for a new challenge, this is a great one to follow along with and challenge yourself to keep up with.
As always, if you have any favorite resources outside of this list please leave a link in the comments! I will try to update these lists as suggestions come in.
