Swing and Lindy (Online) Practice Playlist

Posted on February 11th, 2011 by

NOTE: Unfortunately, it appears that the Grooveshark player is no longer working. Sorry for the inconvenience.

To further help those in our Swing and Lindy Hop classes, we’ve compiled a list of “online” songs for you to practice to. This playlist consists of songs we found available on Grooveshark and are playable via the widget on the right. Now all you have to do is setup your laptop near your practice space (or better yet, hook it up to your stereo) and and press play.

These songs were specifically selected because they have solid beats and steady rhythms. This is especially good for beginners. The tempos in the playlist are mixed, however, all the songs tend to be on the slower side so they should be easy to use for practice. Jump around in the list and find something that inspires you.

If you enjoy the music, be sure to pop by your favorite music service (or music store) and make a purchase. It’s good to support swing music! We’ve also compiled a list of suggested practice music specifically available on iTunes.

Balboa (Online) Practice Playlist

Posted on February 11th, 2011 by

NOTE: Unfortunately, it appears that the Grooveshark player is no longer working. Sorry for the inconvenience.

In order to further help those of you taking our Balboa class, we’ve put together an “online” practice playlist. Now all you have to do is set your laptop next to your practice space at home (or even better, hook it up to your stereo) and press play on the widget on the right.

These are a list of songs we found on the Grooveshark service. We purposely picked songs that have a clear beat and a steady rhythm. This should make it easy for those starting out with Balboa to practice to. For the most part, the playlist starts slow and gets faster with each song you progress to.

If you enjoy the music, we encourage you to drop by your favorite music service (or music store) and purchase them. It’s great to support swing music! We’ve also compiled a list of suggested practice music that is available specifically on iTunes.
