Hi!

Soon I'm going to an audition for a dancing school, and I really need advice for a song. I'm thinking of something slow without very much lyrics. Something dreamy, but not boring would be really cool. And yes, also, it's a jazz dance I'm making. I've been searching around the Internet for weeks now without any look. I really appreciate suggestions!

- Jenn.

Try looking at soundtracks for movies or tv shows: many have orchestral pieces made for them that are very dramatic, but don't have lyrics.

My favorite, as I say a lot on DDN, is Murray Gold's compositions for Doctor Who and Torchwood. Here are some of my favorite youtube links:

This is Gallifrey. Our Childhood, Our Home.

The Doctor Forever

Rose's Theme

Martha's Theme

Agreed with AlwaysOnStage. Check out Latika's Theme from Slumdog Millionaire if you want something really "dreamy".

Thank you very much! These songs are excellent suggestions. I will definitively consider using one of these songs.
