Summer Playlist Updates 2014

Hope you’re all having a great summer!

Need some refreshments for your class playlists? Look no further – here are a few tunes to change up your playlist.  I’m teaching mostly tap this summer, so my playlist tends to lean in that direction, but most of these songs could easily crossover into jazz / children’s hip hop / contemporary.

CHILDREN / TWEENS

Call It Whatever (Bella Thorne)

Really Don’t Care (Demi Lovato)

Dar Um Jeito/We Will Find A Way (Avicii / Santana) – FIFA World Cup theme, a really good upbeat song – the whole album “One Love, One Rhythm” actually has a lot of fun “world” music

Can You Do This (Aloe Blacc) –  I’ve been using this as part of an improv combination – on the chorus we trade 8’s in tap class

Classic (MKTO)

TEENS

Love Runs Out (One Republic) – its been all over the radio stations, but I love using this in tap class for warm-ups

Basically I (Robert DeLong) – good warm-up / across the floor song

On Top Of The World (Imagine Dragons) – a happy little song that makes me smile

Luck (American Authors)

Sing (Ed Sheeran)

Problem (Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea) – another Top 40 rounds out my summer playlist update
