Years ago the studio I was at did a Television theme. The opening was "thats entertainment" and about every 4-5 dances we did commercials. They grouped class assistants into little groups and we put together little commercials, it was fun and a big hit. You can mix old and new shows and either use the theme song or find a song related to the the show.

Happy Days- Theme Song
The Hills-"Unwritten"
iCarly-"Leave it all the Me" Miranda Cosgrove
Hannah Montana-"Best of Both Worlds" hannah montana
I Dream of Jeannie-"Genie in a Bottle" Christina Agulira
Friends- theme song
Las Vegas- theme song "A little less conversation" Elvis
Laguna Beach- "Let the Rain fall down" Hilary Duff
Kim Possible-"Call me, beep me" Chirstina milian
Grey's Anatomy-"How to save a life"
Mickey Mouse club House- theme song

So recital is next week and I'm gathering my ideas for next year's theme so I will have plenty of songs to choose from before classes begin.

Has anyone ever done a Heros and Villains theme? What songs did you use? Anyone have any suggestions on songs? Here are a few I've thought about:

Hero--Nickleback
Hero-Mariah Carey
Superman Three Doors Down

I'm having a hard time coming up with villain songs and songs I can use for tap

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.
