Time to choose songs for the 2012-13 dance season

Recitals are wrapping up, or are done, and now on to Nationals for many competitive dance studios. That means now is the perfect time to finalize your song selections for the coming 2012-2013 dance season! When you have selected your song, and you need it edited, cut, or remixed to competition length, then email me, and I’ll make it happen for you. I can also speed your song up, slow it down, or raise its volume without distortion.

Here are a few songs to get your musical creative juices flowing:

Jazz:

Tenderoni – Chromeo

What Is Hip? – Juju Orchestra

Who Do You Think You Are? – Spice Girls

Lyrical:

Against All Odds – Academical Village People (a cappella cover of Phil Collins)

Slow Me Down – Emmy Rossum (nearly a cappella)
Slow Me Down – The Illinois Rip Chords (purely a cappella cover)

Songs for Tap Dance, part 3

Nationals have wrapped up, summer dance camps have begun, and we are now in the full hunt for just that right pieces of magical music for next season’s routines. A cappella (which means without instruments) songs can be a fantastic choice for tap, if your student is a strong hoofer, because the music is open enough to let the sound of the taps really ring through. If you have other great song ideas for tap routines, leave them in the comments below and I’ll add ‘em! If you want to use any of these songs and need them edited perfectly for competition, we’d love to edit it for you. Also, we have song suggestions for JazzContemporaryLyricalMusical Theater, and Kid Friendly Hip Hop. And here are even more songs for tap, and Songs for Tap, Part 1 and Part 2.

I’d Like To (a cappella) – Voices In Your Head

Jesse’s Girl (vocal style) – Co Co Beaux (Rick Springfield cover)

I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker – Sandy Thom

Rolling In The Deep – Angela Wolff (Adele cover)

4 Minutes (acoustic) – Boyce Avenue (Madonna cover)

A Cappella in Acapulco (a cappella)- The Real Group

Dancing Queen (acoustic guitar) – Frank Turner (ABBA cover)
