Soca Soca Give Me Socaaaaaahh – Track 1 and,
OMG, this is the song the selectors play, EV-ER-Y
DAY! OK, these are the lyrics of the song, but it’s
meta AF ’cause it really is that song!
BODYJAM 92 is packed full of Hip Hop, huge
huge huge drops with beautiful sideways to take
you everywhere, starting with this amazing new
Track 1, Big Bad Soca.
We get heavy for Isolations (ummm… don’t we
always?) then welcome to Groovy Soca – the
queen of Bacchanal brings us the bestest and
latest Track 3 of all time.
Then, just think of the best music in the world,
and welcome to Hip Hop. Drops galore with
Paise, all the old-school you know (“now, I just
wanna love you!”) before the best of 2019 hits
with Hot Girl Summer (bummer coming next
round), Bounce Back, into Truffle Butter… whoop
Bring the heart rate down with full SASS, before
the second half is gonna challenge your cardio
with strong powerful arm-lines into silky smooth
motions, like having an arm wrestle with a
stingray. My favorite is Death & Desire – that
melody is just sublime – before the all-star takes
us home with Retrograde, and you are gonna love
every inch of it in your earholes. (That was super
funny and clever until I realized that Smashmouth
sings All Star, and not Sublime… Sorry, getting
my 90s’ Ska bands backwards…).
Finish the class with How Do You Sleep –
gorgeous vocals and sensual styles. Sounds like
BODYJAM to me.
Many of the older BODYJAM blocks have a
considerably higher complexity level that will be
out of reach for many new members in your class.
If you teach the more complex routines from
past releases, you will inevitably alienate new
participants, and they will be unlikely to come
For example, blocks to avoid:
BODYJAM 37 Jazz Rock
BODYJAM 38 Latin Block
BODYJAM 39 Dance 4 Life
BODYJAM 40 Jive & Swing, Krump Club
BODYJAM 43 Disco Cardio
BODYJAM 46 Tribal Explosion
BODYJAM 49 Street Jazz
If you have a more advanced audience who you
have taught these routines to over many years,
then maybe you can pull out one of these blocks
once every six months. But if, like me, you have
a bunch of new people in each class you teach,
then I strongly suggest you avoid these blocks
with higher complexity.
However, there are some incredible older tracks,
full of magic and simple, pure dance feel:
BODYJAM 41 La Bomba, BODYJAM 33 Hey
Mama, BODYJAM 42 Jam De Podium, and who
could forget the Battle from BODYJAM 32!
Pick and choose your tracks carefully and you will
have the floor on fire every week.
