I like Enya's 'May It Be' I think it's called, there are so many great songs out there to skate to with words, what are you looking for particularly? Something slow? fast? long? Short?

I'd recommend Pas De Deux from the Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky. I like it alot, but you may have to cut it to make it fit your music length. That one doesn't have words.
If you want words - how about 'Once upon a december' from Disney's Anastasia?
Good luck with your music!

I think the judge meant that its very hard to interpret a song about someone elses life? It's hard to explain, but I get what she means. You'd be better off with a song that you can "act out". I'm trying to think of some songs that could work for you but I don't know how old you are because this definitely makes a difference. If you don't mind sharing your age I could probably come up with a few things for you :)

I don't think that the "slowness" is your problem - it's just a hard song to "interpret" or "act out" because of its content. And if you're choreographing the routine on your own, or if you're on the young side I can see where it might be a slight problem.

p.s. What does your coach say about all this? Usually they have good advice in this area.

I'm 14
unfortoucnatly my coach has just moved away, and i'm sorta on my own, but i've made up my own interpreative solo's and competed them coming from a dance background...
regarding the Once upon a december someone in my area has skated to that and i LOVED the music.... and they also won B.C's form pre intro with that music i think

This might also be helpful if you are still looking:
www.dance.net . . .

Its the lyrical jazz board's song survey- a lot of lyrical songs are great for artistic programs :) You can also check the jazz forums for more (usually a bit more upbeat) depends on what you want your artistic program to look like.

Best of luck!

"don't cry for me argentina" is beautiful from EVita

Maybe "My heart will go on" from Titanic

The nutcraker Pas de dux id exquiste muics, but has no words, and besides who else could skate to it after Shen and Zhao and sasha cohen did.

what about somthing bt andrea Bochelli. i love skating to his muisc.
