Christmas Music for All Dance Styles

Christmas time is here!  This means you’ve probably been hearing holiday music on almost every radio station and in many department stores since Thanksgiving!  If you are a dancer, you might also be hearing Christmas music being played frequently at your dance studio (It honestly feels like we have been playing holiday tunes since September!).  Even if your instructor hasn’t been playing festive tunes, you can still get into the holiday spirit by dancing to some classic and contemporary Christmas songs.  There is a jolly song for almost every dance style.  Below is a list of songs to dance to when you want to get yourself in the holiday mood.  Enjoy!
