Looking for ballet songs for a Las Vegas theme. I tried using the search box on this site but it does’nt seem to work for any word I type in. I know there has to be someone who has asked about Vegas recital theme. Anyhow- any ballet song ideas would be great thanks

We did Vegas a few years ago as one of our recitals. I used Vitamin String Quartet's version of 'Poker Face' for one of my groups, Shostakovich 'Waltz number 2' from his Jazz Suite as the Venetian, 'Little April Showers' as the fountains.

I used Debussy's 'Maid with the Flaxen Hair' for a ballet about jewels and we had a jazz group as jewel thieves who staged a Vegas heist by stealing the jewels at the end of the dance.

I also had a teen beginner class that I used 'I am' by AWOLNATION, they had beautiful blue costumes and represented the dessert sky.
