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)
One in a Million – Down With Webster
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. 🙂
Weekends!!! – Skrillex (feat. Sirah)
Changing Of The Seasons – Two Door Cinema Club
Further On – Bronze Radio Return
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)
Devil With the Blue Dress On / Good Golly Miss Molly – Mitch Ryder
