Lyrical dance music with an anti-bullying message

violin-red-roseBullying is an all-too-common problem for young people as they enter middle school and high school. Dance can be very therapeutic and helpful to relieve the anxiety of bullying tendencies, and art is always a great way to get through with a message. Squirrel Trench Audio has put together a soundtrack that could serve as the musical foundation for your lyrical dance conveying an anti-bullying message. The music is a shortened version of Vitamin String Quartet doing a cover version of “I’ll Stand By You” originally written by Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders.

In addition, we have a the same version of “I’ll Stand By You”, but without the added dialogue here:

Hot Hot Hot New Dance Music – Uptown Funk!

markronsonbrunomarsvideograb600Bruno Mars is the lead singer on Mark Ronson’s new, ultra-funky song, Uptown Funk. The groove is MASSIVE, and will get you up and dancing with its infectious beat. The only problem with this song, from a dance teacher’s point of view, is that it’s long (4:30), and there are lyrics inappropriate for dance students throughout. (As example, the background singers sing “hot damn” through the verses.) There are some other inappropriate lyrics sprinkled throughout as well.

Good news for dance teachers, Squirrel Trench Audio has been hard at work, editing the song into FOUR different lengths to get you exactly the right length for your students! The four timings are 2:45, 2:32, 2:16, and 1:59. And in all four versions, the lyrics have been CLEANED, so that there is no objectionable content in it.

This song is SO hot, it should come with a warning label:
Warning: Uptown Funk is so hot that multiple playbacks on your stereo system could cause dancers to lose control and overheat.

Hard rock music for advanced competitive dancers
