10 Clean Dance Songs: For Back to School Fun!

18 Aug

Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 2.50.36 PMAs I gear up to see my public school kiddos next week and all my teacher friends prepare to have their classrooms full again, I thought it might be time for another list of TOTALLY CLEAN but also {totally hip} dance songs for use in school settings and beyond. For some street cred and mad cool points, play one of these babies in your classroom or music therapy sessions–but don’t blame me if it turns into a full-fledged dance party. You’ve been warned!

For more ideas, don’t miss my original dance song playlists, found here and here.

1. I Will Never Let You Down (Rita Ora)


2. Believer (American Authors) **Bonus points: Use for lyric analysis.**


3. Ten Feet Tall (Afrojack)


4. Rather Be (Clean Bandit)


5. Hideaway (Kiesza)


6. Shower (Becky G)


7. Am I Wrong (Nico & Vinz)


8. A Sky Full of Stars (Coldplay)


9. We Are Done (The Madden Brothers)


10.  I Want You Back (Jackson 5) .Okay, fine. This isn’t a new song. But I’m obsessed with the Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack…can you blame me? Plus, this video confirms that I need giant fringe scarves for my shirt sleeves.

    I checked out your blog recently and saw that you posted “Believer” for a good, clean, back to school song. I have used it in so many sessions and all of my clients love it! Thanks!

    I’m DJing a new years lock-in for a Christan business and just wanted to let you know your clean song lists helped me out immensely! Thank you! Keep up the good work!
