Here are some that I've seen turn out really well:

Cell Block Tango - Chicago
You Can't Stop the Beat - Hairspray
America - West Side Story

I've seen Respect also...it's a good one, but it's very common. I hope I helped!

I've done....
Nothing- from A Chorus Line
Mama I'm a Big Girl Now- from Hairspray
Never Fully Dressed W/Out a Smile-Annie

I'm curious...do you guys lip sync to the whole song? or just cerain parts as accents to the routine?

Anything musical theatre would be good to lip sync. there are lots of songs listed on that board.

like stated before...'hey big spender'... that is my jazz song this year.
and we're also doing 'miss otis regrets'... which is telling a story and it's fun to dance to...

and in response to acrodance4me: we only lip sync to parts when we're doing the easier parts of the routine. if we get into turns or a lift, then we won't lip sync. but we still use facials!

Thanks Krumper08 for the response:)
I teach pantomine as well as acro. I only have 2 girls that I teach lip sync to this year but I have them lip sync the entire song. This is how we did it was I was a kid(which was over 10 years ago) but I'm noticing that girls are either not lip syncing at all to a musical theater song or just on certain parts of the song.
I was just curious since the girls at my studio lip sync all the words the entire length of the routine. ( it seems like we're the only ones that do that)

thanks for your insight though:)

dance.net . . .

There's a link to the musical theater forum.

Good luck finding a song!
