New Music Mondays: Contemporary Playlist, Part 2

The term “contemporary dance” has evolved over the past few years to encompass a variety of dance genres. On TV shows like “So You Think You Can Dance”, it overlaps into lyrical, modern, ballet and jazz. Here is a playlist attempting the span the reaches of contemporary dance. Leaning more ballet/lyrical… check out the Slow and Delicate songs. Or pick up the pace for some jazzier selections. Miss your lyrical face? Bring on the angst!
