I love starting class with cardio-inspired workouts to get the blood moving before we move into larger movements.
Here are some songs that my dancers love “working out” to! (links open in iTunes)
The Spark (ft. Spree Wilson) – Afrojack – These first two songs are lesser known, which means they aren’t overplayed on the radio and the kids don’t know every word, but they still have a great beat.
Timber – Pitbull ft. Ke$ha – I have a killer tap stamina warm-up to this song for my advanced girls – I get requests for it every week… not sure if the kids like the tap exercise or just listening to the song. 🙂
Now I See – Tessa Rose Jackson – a little more laid-back – would be good for light warm-up or cool down
A Few Others
Danza Kuduro (feat. Lucenzo) – Don Omar (oldie but a goodie)
