For a tap exam, I danced to 'Realy Saying Something' by Bananarama- that went realy well, and it was a fun song to dance too!

music for time steps

Hi, What do you use to teach time steps, my teacher uses what she calls the hokey song (basically banjo country music) but it goes at light speed! she also uses "some kinda wonderful" from sky but it's still a little fast, any suggestions for something with the right beat for time steps but not so fast.

For a recent display we did Bambaleo by the Gypsy Kings and it looked really good - like flamenco.

Even though this might have been said because I didn't fully read the post. Like a lot of songs by Scott Joplin are good. I did the Maple Leaf Rag last year at comp and won so it's worth a try.

I have found that In The Mood is a wonderful song to dance to...and also that the Peter Gunn theme song is really cool. Other songs that I think are really cool to dance to include:

Karma by Alicia Keys (the Stevie Wonder remix is really good too!)

Nothin' To Lose By Josh Gracin

Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy by Big and Rich

Sweet Georgia Brown...I think that's the title...

Cotton Eyed Joe or the remix to really good scores!

Yeah By Usher has a really great beat!

Dream On by Aerosmith
