Whether it’s cleaning the house, organizing my desktop or sweating it out at the gym, music is a huge motivator for me. And of course I have to have the hottest beats for my dance classes. Nothing like hearing the same songs during warm-up all year long to make you go crazy.
I spend a lot of time curating my playlists because one of my biggest pet peeves is overplayed music. I CANNOT listen to Shut Up and Dance one more time, and yet, it used to be my favorite song. For a hot second that is. To me, as soon as a song is on the radio, it’s over for me.
Well maybe not that drastic, but it’s a slow downward spiral after that point.
My running playlist needs to be upbeat, positive and the more it can make me want to dance while running (although not recommended), the better. This is also the playlist I use for my jazz classes and warm-ups.
My dance class playlists are split up into Hip Hop and Contemporary, mostly because those are two very different music categories. But it’s basically faster music that helps you get your swag on, and then slow chill music.
