Dance: The Musical – The Song List

With Sky: The Musical underway, thought it was time for the song list from the previous musical. A reminder that Act 2 (of Sky) is Tuesday at 9:30 pm (Eastern US). See the Hear Ye page for more information.

Compared to other musicals, Dance: The Musical was short – only four acts. From in-the-title keywords as dance, dances, dancing, dancers, compound words with dance, to types of dances, the contributors to this blog provided 165 songs. This is a wonderful list, thus perfect for a playlist.

Enjoy the list … and thanks for participating to make Dance: The Musical a smashing success.

  1. I think this has almost every song recognizable to listen or dance to. I have enjoyed musicals so, “Shall we dance” is full of memories and “Dance with my Father” special, too. Rock is my favorite and you have great ones, Van Halen, etc 🙂
