Dance Music

My Personally Curated Playlists

I'm always listening to a variety of music with an ear for danceable tunes. This includes new dance music, covers, and collaborations. Still, I enjoy music that is undanceable, but just as often pass over the drivel that sounds like ten other songs on the week's top 40. So, these lists are the product of my personal search for more current music, suitable for various dance styles, with an effort to clearly distinguish between the styles so the music doesn't get lost in the movement.

Newer Two Step music in its original format. I listen for the typical "boom-tick" rhythm, and sometimes a "boom-tick-tick". Some tempos are suitable for beginners. Stay tuned for competition cuts . . .

As beautiful a dance that Triple Two Step is, it is challenging to dance because the triple steps should have no emphasis. Similarly, songs of this dance style are smooth with little emphasis and some without big phrase endings. Some songs are not phrased. Stay tuned for competition cuts . . .
