Have you found yourself in a Choreography slump? It happens! Along with start of the new year comes the realization that your dance classes need to start setting choreography for competitions, recitals, or end of the year shows. This realization can put a lot of pressure, creatively, on you. No worries, you're not alone. Sometimes, the best solution is to clear your mind as best as possible, turn on some feel good music, and let the movement come to you. I've composed a list of the top 10 songs that I find have inspired choreography. Once you've got your movement, set it to a piece of music that is then more suitable for your classes age group, theme, and style!

1. You've Got the Love - Florence and the Machine

2. Right to be Wrong - Joss Stone

3. Everything is Moving So Fast - Great Lake Swimmers

4. Intriguing Possibilities - Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross

5. The Sound of White - Missy Higgins

6. O Mio Babbino Caro Redux - East Village Opera Company

7. Let the Rain - Sara Bareilles

8. Shine A Little Love - Electric Light Orchestra

9. Blow Yo Horn - Cynthia Hopkins

10. Ants Marching - Dave Matthews Band


I tried to put a little inspiration in there for souls of all beats of life. Happy dancing always! Please comment below and share your own feel good music!
