Dance Music

There are two categories here because music that's good for dancing to isn't always the best for practice. The practice section should remain a listing of tunes/collections suited for use in practice sessions. These selections may also be just fine for dancing to in a more public setting but there are frequently more "attractive" pieces that can be used. Obviously the placement of a given work is subjective. It's ok to post the same work in both sections if you feel that its good for kickin' it out and practicing to.

For dancing[edit]

Music that really gets your toes to tapping and makes you want to get up and dance and is good for performance.
