Thanks to Alexandra Franzen for great blog ideas!
One of the things I get great feedback on during CABARRET classes is my choice of music. There is so much good stuff out there, that you're just not getting on Top 40 radio. So here is my 10 Ten List of Dance-able tunes. There is no way you can sit still when these songs are on!
(Some links are videos, some are to iTunes, there's even a free download in there. Have fun!)

- Dr. Wanna Do- Caro Emerald
- Papa Loves Mambo- Perry Como, particularly the Skeewiff remix
- Bossa Nova Baby- Elvis Presley, particularly the Viva Elvis Remix
