For the Go For the Gold theme - if you need ballet songs, try "Gold" by Linda Eder (theme of the Salt Lake City olympics, i believe?) and "The Power of the Dream" by Celine and "Reach" by Gloria Estefan(again, I think this one was for the Atlanta Olympics) They are perfect and have a great message!

We're doing One Hit Wonders, too! :) There's a really pretty song that Grade 3 ballet (age 8 - 12) is using, called "Dreams."

Other ONE HIT WONDERS songs: Disco Duck - Rick Dees Purple People Eater - Sheb Wooley Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol Baby Got Back (heavily edited, of course) - Sir Mix-A-Lot Dont Leave Me This Way Ice, Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice What's Left of Me - that boy band guy (haha) Whoomp There It Is Whiter Shade of Pale Earth Angel - The Penguins Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus Silence Tainted Love (not the Marilyn Manson version) Silence Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve The Freshmen - The Verve Pipe Barbie Girl - Aqua Sugar, Sugar Howzat Beach Baby Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp She Bomp)?

A great teen Halloween ballet is Danse Macabre. They really get into the music because it is kind of dark and untraditional...and you can use some comtemporary choreography. We've used this piece twice over the years and the audience loves it. You can also try Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor

For villian songs you could do music from Harry Potter, the themes that are dangerous sounding. Also from the movie Enchanted, for the little ones the music is dangerous sounding when the witch comes on. How about some real strong rock music for the tap numbers. Something from Kiss?

A couple years ago we did a dinosaurs and dragons theme- It was so much fun, especially the costumes. Some of the music we used was: Bop bop Dinosaur Disco Dinosaur Puff the magic dragon Do the dragon (From dragon tales) A t-rex named sue Look what followed me home Jurassic park theme I want to learn about dinosaurs Once upon a time ago T-rex boogie The stegosaurus song Colossal Fossil Dino beat Walk like a dinosaur Those are only a few we used - Once we started looking for song ideas we were amazed by how many dinosaur songs actually exist, And the little boys really loved this theme.

I need song ideas for animals. Preferably animals that are blue-ish and nothing cliche like lions or elephants. All those are taken. I'm already using barracudas, lobsters, poison dart frogs, lightning bugs, hyenas and blue footed boobies (no I didn't pick that one my boss told me I would use it but I laughed and thought of DDN as soon as she told me.) So any suggestions would be MOST appreciated because we have to set everything immediately.

Star Songs (someone else was looking for these, so I thought I'd add the list I suggested to her here) Jazz/Tap "All Star" - Smash Mouth "I'm a Star" - Jeremih "Rockstar" - Prima J "Stars" - Switchfoot "Video Killed the Radio Star" - The Buggles "Lucky Star" - Madonna "Star Wars Theme" - lots of remixes of this "Star Trek Theme" - also a lot of remixes "On Broadway" - George Benson Ballet "The Rose" - Bette Midler "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" "Astronaut" - The Cranes (Beautiful song. I always thought it sounded very spacey, and I guess that's why it's called "Astronaut". Could have a class of "shooting stars" perhaps? You can listen here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLwOYB5UzGk and the CD on Amazon is here - http://www.amazon.com/Particles-Waves-CD-Bonus-DVD/dp/B000AE8FVC/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1257951308&sr=1-5) "Stardust" - Nat King Cole "Starry Starry Night" - Don McLean "Good Morning Starshine" - Oliver (there's also a good version on the Hair soundtrack) "Evergreen" - Barbara Streisand (theme from A Star is Born)

So my thought for this year was to do "Praise Him with the Dance"--its our first recital for a tiny program, all of our dancers are under 12. Here's what I have: opener: 7 Ways to Praise creative movement: He's Got the Whole World in His Hands K-1 tap: The Cartoon Song (Chris Rice) 2nd-4th ballet: Untitled Hymn 2nd-4th grade jazz: The Word Was closer: Praise Him with the Dance I still need K-1 ballet 2nd-4th tap. I'd like songs about praise or about dance (preferably Christian)...

We have a lot of singing classes as well as dance so need to find stuff to suit. Any suggestions appreciated! So far got ideas of: NEW YORK New York, New York Empire State of Mind PARIS Phantom of the Opera Moulin Rouge Can Can AFRICA Welcome to the Jungle AUSTRALIA I Still Call Australia Home Maybe to incorporate more current songs for hip hop or song&dance, I could make it a travel theme, that way maybe they could go to a concert of Miley Cyrus or Britney or something.

OK so I've looked through the WHOLE post and can't find what I'm looking for. My studio is doing "Once Upon a Time" and I need a jazz song for 9-10 year olds. I'm already using Little Red Riding Hood by Bowling for Soup for Tap but I can't seem to find a jazz song. It doesn't necessarily need to be a song from a movie or story but if it somehow tells a story in the song, that would be great.

Michael Jackson is always a great artist for songs about 'change'. Man in the Mirror and Heal the World are two of my favorites. I know they don't compliment the styles your looking for but it may lead you to some new thoughts for songs.

But more along the lines of months or holidays. (other than the obvious, Christmas, etc.) Maybe something you wouldn't usually think about. Like I saw this song about a yard sale. Thought that might be different to add that in the springtime or something!?

How about the song "Sing, Sing, Sing"? I remember when i was younger we did a dance to this but it was called "News, news, news". We had newspapers for props and the old 'newsies' costumes.

I know that this is late, but you could have used Kerli's "Walking on Air" Check it out and eventually do a dance to it. Its a great song :)

Thinking of a Musical Theatre theme - but stuck for ideas particularly on Hip Hop Classes (we have little hip hops 4-7 and then 7-12 then 12-15 and Adult) and even Song & Dance classes (who normallly do very modern music) - could we do Glee? Its not a stage show though but maybe I may have to be a little flexible! Any other class suggestions appreciated! We do acro, jazz/tap, ballet, tini musical theatre, musical theatre, singing, modelling. Thanks!

Hi all, what a great threaOur theme this year is a story set in space, my classes are all supposed to 'evil' or something along the lines. So far I have: Purple People Eater - 6-8 yr old tap Mean Green Mother From OuterSpace - Senior Jazz But I am so stuck on my other two classes, a 6-10 yr old jazz class and 8-10 yr old tap class. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! The songs don't necassarily have to relate to space, just evil sounding I guess!

We did that theme a couple of years ago, only it was 100 years of dancing. My classes were: Junior Jazz - spice up your life Junior Tap - Monster Mash Primary Ballet - Music was called ballet chicks in their shells, but we called it bathing beauties, set it in 40's with the old fashioned bathers, it was very cute. Senior Jazz classes did mostly modern songs from this decade. Beginner Jazz - Dancing Queen Inter Tap - Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy Inter Tap - Thouroughly Modern Millie (sorry abour spelling!) Senior Jazz - Viva las Vegas, or you could use any Elvis song really Inter Jazz - Surfing Safari Junior Jazz - Locomotion or Material Girl

aliciawhitaker- have you thought about Christian songs? Sometimes they have some great inspirational songs, that aren't focused on worship and praise. You could try the artist Plumb. If religion isn't your preference, then maybe Beautiful by Christina Aigulara or something like Miley Cyrus' The Climb. (for lyrical). Google search is useful, too!

There is a very old movie with Dick Van Dyke that has a cute song for that. There are actually wind up sounds and music box music too. I think it may be "Babes in Toyland" but I am not sure. The scene is with Van Dyke and a girl dancing for a king pretending to be a wind up toy and music box dancer.

The easiest thing to do is to first pick the nursery rhymes you'd like to use, and then find a song that will work with that "character." For instance, you could do "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and either have one girl be Mary and the rest be sheep, or they could all be Mary and dance with stuffed sheep. You could use "La valse d'Amelie" by Yann Tiersen. It's very lullaby sounding. Or how about "London Bridge Is Falling Down?" You could make a bridge prop or have the girls dance with blue scarves (water). They could dance to "Caribbean Blue" by Enya, which is very "watery" sounding.

There is a good song from the show Glee. It is a Mash-up of Umbrella and Singing in the Rain. It has a great beat and would be great for the Hip Hop group. Also there is a song called "Trickle Trickle Splash Splash" by Manhattan Transfer. That maybe over the heads of the Kinder class, but a great song for the theme.

Will have done a "Storybook" theme in the past, and will be doing a similar one this year (long enough in between to repeat, lol).

(Al Gilbert Songs for the little ones) Mary's Dancing Lamb ABC's in Song & Dance I'm a Starlet Dancer Versions of I'm a Little Teapot, etc. Storybook Ball Mother Goose Parade Merry Land of Oz Heigh Ho There's a song on a Barbie CD (LOL) called "Wonderland" which is good for beginning jazz. I need more ideas. This is a list of what we've used in the past that I can remember...I need to brainstorm! Katy :)

"King of the Road" - Roger Miller "Killer Queen" - Queen "King of Anything" - Sara Bareilles "Duke of Earl" - Gene Chandler "Queen of Hearts" - Juice Newton "Dancing Queen" - Abba "Heads Will Roll" - Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Alice in Wonderland/Queen of Hearts theme) And if you have ballet classes, you could dress them as a queen, princess, whatever of your choosing and use an instrumental song. For instance, dress them all as "Snow White" and pick a pretty instrumental song like this: http://youtu.be/eBh2IYjJNX8 Also remember that royal titles extend beyond King and Queen. You have: King Queen Prince Princess Duke Duchess Baron Baroness Count Countess Knight Earl Emperor

We used that to transition into our villains, along with adding a mask to our face smash the place my chick bad (Nicki Minaj- starting from "it's going down" to "and guess who's playin' Freddy) We also added many instrumental songs with a fast beat to the 'villain' part of the dance. I hope this helps!

Theme has changed (of course after I already song searched for two weeks) It is PARTY! I'm stuck for ballet and my babies. We tend to do a ballet based dance with them, so slow or medium speed could work! Thanks
We did a theme like this one year. For the babies, we did a tea party. I believe we just used instrumental music. We had wooden stools on stage with table cloths (2 little dancers at each stool). We used giant coffee cups. They pretended to drink, tippy toed around the stool/table; touched cups together; and did all their dance steps. It turned out really cute!

I'm looking for songs with a 'cats' theme that are a bit more modern/funky than the usual Cats musical songs Also if anyone is chasing a something different for a circus theme try 'Hey U' by Basement Jaxx. Not a specific circus song but has that feel to it!

I have looked through the WHOLE thread and I can't find the theme I am stumped on. I work for two sisters at different dance studios and they become very competitive at times. I was given the theme "FLY" from the older sister for our 2015 recital; where I run into a little problem is the younger sister did a "FLY" theme just 2 years prior where I used all of my songs related to the theme. Now I have to come up with NEW songs with that same theme and I'm all out of ideas. I don't want the older sister to feel like I'm using the "left-over" songs; seeing as they are very competitive I know they will compare the two. I know it is a broad topic but any help would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for mostly upbeat jazz and hip hop songs for ages 4-adults. I would like to stray away from "space" related songs seeing as the older sister isn't fond of mixing fly with outer space. In the past I have used: E.T. - Katy Perry (Space was accepted into the theme) Fly On the Wall - Miley Cyrus Space Jam Fly -Nicki Minaj Up Up & Away - Kid Cudi Fly - Sugar Ray The Rain (Super Dupa Fly) - Missy Elliott and a few others that I can't think of at the moment. *I'm not the best at "themed" music

I have 4 acro classes and 1 Jazz/Tap class. One acro class is 5-7 year olds, the second is 6-10 year olds, the third is 8-12 year olds and the fourth is 10-12 year olds. The jazz/tap class is 6-8 year olds. The theme is City Lights. HELPPPPPP!!! I have some ideas but am unsure if they will fit the theme: Under the Sea - A-Teens, Jai Ho - Slumdog Millionaire, Firework - Katy Perry, and Jellicle Cats - Cats. Ideas would be greatly appreciated

"I am looking for either a doll or puppet themed selection of songs?? Preferably a few creepy ones for the older ones?" Sorry, I'm new here, not sure of how to tag or whatever. Anyway, here's a few I know. (Haven't added the one already mentioned.) Dollhouse-Pricilla Renea. China Doll- Rachel Loshak Both of these can be found on iTunes. I'm looking for songs that can be used for "Losing home". Basically anything, any style would be great and any age group, but please specify. So far I've got: Nothing to Lose: Billy Talent- Teens 13-17, (Jazz) without the screaming part where I can't understand a word of what they're saying. Somewhere Over the Rainbow- Obviously. I'm using for 9-12 (Ballet) Time After Time- Cyndi Lauper Pre-Teens 9-12 (Lyrical) (They are dreaming about being at home during a campout and they re-enact the dream) Anybody got anything else? Preferably something about homelessness and another for a hostage situation where someone is trapped and can't get away from the person who trapped them. Both are lyrical pieces, and solos. Age range for homelessness, any. Hostage situation: 9-17 (But keep lyrics clean, because parents will be attending and the little ones will be there too.) Thanks

Hi Everyone, I am looking for a fun ballet number for some 6-8 year olds with a 1980s theme, plus a tap number. At the moment, I am thinking of 'True Colours' but think it's a biut 'serious' for this particular group. They also need a tap number. I have managed to cover all the other groups, but this group is one of those groups that respond to energetic/themed music rather than serious-but I don't want to baby them either!!!! Complicated!! Any suggestions for 1980s songs would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
