I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas for dance recital music, our theme this year is movies. I havn't taught in a few years so I don't know a lot of good songs to use, please make sure they are appropriate.

I have 3 jazz and 2 tap classes. I have a few ideas but feel free to give me more or tell me what you think about the ideas or maybe which song you like better? THANKS! :)

Jazz-
8th grade: sweet emotions (armageddon) or higher ground (center stage)
4th/5th grade: something from dream girls (one night only or dream girls) or can't stop the beat (hairspray)
2nd/3rd grade: no ideas!!!

Tap:
5th/6th grade: hit me up (happy feet)
2nd/3rd grade: do you love me (dirty dancing) or cuban pete (the mask)

There is some cute music in the Bratz movies. Also, many of the recent kid movies and those that were brought back to life have cute soundtracks-Bolt, Shrek, Smurfs, Space Chimps, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Chicken Little, Flushed Away, Camp Rock, High School Musical, 102 Dalmations, The Lizzie McGuire Movie, Shark Tale, Hannah Montana, etc...

We used Witch Doctor from Alvin and the Chipmunks last year for third and fourth graders and the kids got really into it. It's the soundtrack version that's more hip hop and less annoying chipmunk voices so it's easier to listen to week after week ;)

What about Disney movies? Eye to Eye or Stand Out from A Goofy Movie are awesome for that age group.

What about doing something like a school theme? I'm doing something similar, and we also have a movie theme this year. Maybe call the dance something like "Summer School," "School of Rock," or something similar that fits better with your songs. There's a song by the School Gyrls called Detention, it's up beat, and great for 2-3rd graders.
