Normally, when you come across a short song when searching for music for your routines, you breathe a sigh of relief. You think to yourself, “Thank goodness, I don’t have to cut this one!” However, occasionally the song is TOO short. Into the void steps this extended (2:23), rockin’ fun version of Let It Snow! by the Brian Setzer Orchestra, perfect for a group tap routine. This song is simply begging to be used in a tap routine, and is great for any age dancers.
I’ve been busy here at Squirrel Trench Audio getting songs ready for the upcoming competition season. It’s been a blast doing the music editing for this Top 10 studio, and I can’t wait to see the amazing routines this studio will do with the music this year!
The piece I am most excited for is a medley/original creation we’ve called “Pixie Hollow.” This character piece for 8-10 year olds was envisioned by dance instructor Lesley Lambert. She supplied me with several related pieces of music, including spoken voice, which I then wove together into a spritely montage. I know this is going to win some awards this year!
Other songs which I’ve edited this season include:
Jump, Jive & Wail – Brian Setzer Orchestra
Dancin’ Fool – Ballroom Orchestra
Fabulous – Chelsea Staub
Wake Me Up Before You Go Go – Three Girlzz
Let It Snow – Brian Setzer Orchestra
I Want To Go To Hollywood – Sutton Foster
Walk This Way (a fun medley which transitions from a Ballroom Orchestra swing version of the song to Aerosmith live)
Won’t You Charleston With Me? – Harvey Evans & Sandy Duncan
I Wish – Stevie Wonder
It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing) – Charlotte Swing Masters
All I Want – Bobby McFerrin
One Way Or Another – Mandy Moore
Fever – A Fine Frenzy
That Old Black Magic – Jeremy Davenport
Cheek To Cheek – Eva Cassidy
The Dynamo of Volition – Jason Mraz
Gravity – Lucy Schwartz

All these songs will be danced at the Headliners’ competition in Lowell MA from March 11-13, Star Systems in Worcester MA from March 25-27, and at OnStage New York competition in Springfield MA from April 2-3.
