Best Dance Tutorial for Learning Full Routines
3. Mandy Jiroux - diva and commercial styles
One of the coolest dance troupes in our list, Mandy and her fellow dancers start by showing you parts of the music video to show you what you will look like, or aim to look like! She then breaks down each section with clear movement and instructions.
Her videos are easy to watch due to learning small sections at a time, and she intersperses the official music video in between her tutorial.
Fun routines and great for all levels of dancer!

Really fun videos done in a television show style, very engaging and easy to watch. Ezinne breaks down popular music videos into easy to learn choreography for all levels of dancer.
From popular music videos from artists like Sia, Little Mix and Arianna Grande, to movie classic routines including Jingle Bell Rock from Mean Girls! Great one to do with friends! Plus she always dresses in the style of the music video which we think is pretty cool.
5. Andrew Heart - more advanced dancers in hip hop and street
His videos go quite quickly through the choreography but the finished result is worth it! Just may need to pause and replay a few times. He also teaches with the mirror which makes it more easy to pick up.
He will do a full video of teaching the choreography and then a full video of dancing the learnt routine. These are great if you want to be pushed with challenging routines in between taking dance classes.
