Dancer Playlist: 12 Songs You Just Have To Dance To


Our dancers may be away for the summer, but they’re not too busy to share their musical tastes with you. We asked a selection of our Company dancers to share the songs that regardless of how poppy, cheesy or downright unexpected they are, they just have to dance to…


Luke Ingham, soloist:

Men Without Hats, “The Safety Dance”
“Not my most favorite song of all time, but it does make me want to get up and dance…”


Gaetano Amico, corps de ballet:

Talking Heads, “Take Me To The River”
“Makes me want to dance.”

Dave Brubeck, The Golden Horn


Luke Willis, corps de ballet:

Justice, “D.A.N.C.E”
“A GREAT dance song.”


Whitney Houston, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”
“I’ve been listening to a remix of this A LOT since her passing, and will probably use it for my annual dance-off with my mom and two younger siblings”



Sasha De Sola, soloist:

“My summer guilty pleasure songs :)”

Icona Pop, “I Love It”


Tegan and Sara, “Closer”



Dores André, soloist:

It turns out Dores has whole playlists jam-packed with the songs that get her on the dancefloor — this is a tiny selection…

David Bowie, “Modern Love”


Janelle Monáe, “Tightrope [feat. Big Boi]” 



Steven Morse, corps de ballet:

“These are equally my favorite workout/dance jams!”
