Theme Ideas for Dance Teams

by / 0 Comments / 23577 View / May 31, 2015

I was recently asked to choreograph a nationals routine and the team requested a “theme.” Themes are great- they can tell a story, tie songs together, create a more watchable routine for the audience, but it can sometimes be hard to come up with a theme that’s isn’t completely overused (girls and jungle…i’m looking at you)

I decided I would provide some theme ideas that I’ve seen, heard about, or even created over the past few years. Here we go:

Work Theme

Song Ideas: Work by Britney, Work by Iggy Azelia, Working Day & Night by Michael Jackson, Slight Work by Wale

Diamonds Theme

Song Ideas: Shine bright by Rihanna, Girls best Friend by Nicole Kidman or Kylie Minogue or Marilyn Monroe,

Freak Theme

Song Ideas: I Fink you Freaky – Die Anterwoord, I can be a Freak by Estelle, Freak a Leak by Petey Pablo

Ice Theme

Song Ideas: Cold Hearted Snake by Paula Abdule, Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice, Cold as Ice by Foreigner

Monster Theme
