Happy (End of) Summer! Keep the summer vibes going as we move towards fall and update your playlists with fun summer tunes! Here is a list of songs I’ve mixed into my classes to keep them feeling updated. Most links open in iTunes store – The Dance Buzz is an iTunes affiliate. All opinions are my own.
Is This Love (LVNDSCAPE & Bolier Remix) – Bob Marley: Instant beach vibes remixed into a good 3-minute warm-up song. (Link to YouTube)
Believer (Kaskade Remix) – Imagine Dragons: A fun twist on this summer hit.
Thunder – Imagine Dragons: Another one from Imagine Dragons, love this song right now
Someone Who Can Dance – Icona Pop: Another good steady beat for warm-ups
Most Girls – Hailee Steinfeld: My middle school classes love this song
LovE is LovE is LovE (Benji Schwimmer Edit) – LeAnn Rimes: Great message, fun song – have been using it for leaps and turns class (link to YouTube)
Celebrate (feat. AJR) – Ingrid Michaelson: A nice laid-back summer tune
Told You So – Paramore: Have been using this for tap warm ups in my senior classes. Has a good steady beat.
Switch (feat. Anitta) – Iggy Azalea: Would be fun for a tap, jazz or hip hop combo.
Location – Khalid: A nice groove for cool down and slower warm-ups. I also used it in tap with my seniors for a nice mellow
