Dance it out: 2017 GRAMMY Nominee Song and Dance




Dancing to music I enjoy off the dance floor, I usually feel an extra level of connection. Based on that idea, here is a list of some dances I'd call if I were a DJ playing music from 2017 GRAMMY nominees. Please jump in on the comments if you have different dance suggestions for these songs.

Based on the list below, I'd sign up for west coast swing lessons, just sayin'.

Speaking of west coast swing, there's a huge west coast swing event happening this weekend in Baltimore called MadJam - check dancejamtv.com throughout the weekend if you want to check the live stream. There's another one called Boston Tea Party happening at the end of March, also expected to be streaming live online.

I didn't quite make it through the 6+ hours of music in Amazon's 2017 Grammy Nominees yet but this should get us started.
