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