Everybody has a little bit of a Disney fan in them, so why not learn how to dance to your favorite tunes from these timeless films? Let’s start out with some of the classic princess movies.
Heigh-Ho – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
The perfect dance to follow the seven dwarfs to work with is a Polka. Or, if you’re feeling extra creative, try a silly Tango!
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo – Cinderella (1950)
With the help of Cinderella’s fairy godmother, put on your best clothes and dance a Polka all the way to the royal ball!
Once Upon a Dream – Sleeping Beauty (1959)
This song is a perfect way to slow it down or speed it way up. Take it slow by pairing this song with a slow, dreamy Foxy. However, if you’re up for a challenge and you’re looking to exercise, go for a very fast Viennese Waltz!
Under the Sea – The Little Mermaid (1989)
Sebastian is the most talented composer under the sea! Put on your dancing fins and try a Salsa to this catchy tune.
Gaston – Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Match Gaston’s huge ego with a confident Viennese Waltz! The tempo to this song is more moderate than “Once Upon a Dream,” so this is a great place to start if you’re newer to Viennese Waltz.
One Jump Ahead – Aladdin (1992)
Aladdin prides himself on always being one jump ahead of trouble. So, how do you keep up with him? You’ll find that a Quickstep will keep you dancing right alongside him!
Colors of the Wind – Pocahontas (1995)
This song takes a while for a clear tempo to set in, so don’t worry if you can’t find the beat right away! Once it does (at about 1:38 in the video), try dancing a Rumba.
Reflection – Mulan (1998)
Mulan may be struggling to find who she really is when she’s singing this beautiful ballad, but you don’t need to struggle along with her when finding a style to pair with this song. A Bolero fits perfectly with the tempo and mood of Reflection.
