    I'm looking for Disney songs which can be used for ballroom dancing (any kind). I know for example that beauty and the beast is a wonderful English waltz though I'd love to know more. Which song would fit which dance?

    There is actually a CD full of cartoon melodies fitted for Ballroom. I'm sorry, I don't have the time toBeast, look up the title now, must be out in 3 minutes. :) It is had the word 'cartoon' in the title though.

    It has a Tango from Beauty and the Beast. It may be called 'Belle', but could be something else. The song that talks about how different Belle is from other girls.

    It's a Klaus Hallen CD. Don't know if anyone's released it in the US yet.

    The swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy plays a fun samba version of "I Want to be Like You" from Jungle Book.

    Welcome to DF Mathew Edison!
  11. Circle of Life, From the Lion King is the perfect Nightclub Two Step. In Fact, its what the creator of the dance style, Buddy Schwimmer, uses to teach Nightclub Two Step to his students.

    One teeny-tiny thing...."Once Upon A December" is a great waltz. But it's not Disney. ;)

    "Once Upon a Dream" from Sleeping Beauty is a VW.

    "So This Is Love" from Cinderella is a Waltz.

    "Everybody Wants to Be A Cat" from The Aristocats is Foxtrot.

    That would be so fun.
  16. The most recent addition to the disney dance lineup is from The Princess and The Frog. The end credits song by Ne-Yo is a wonderful Rumba called "Never knew I needed"

    I've actually done that, it was awesome even though my Viennese still needs quite a bit of work. Great song that you can play with!

    BTW, love your signature, Lioness, in fact I have a t-shirt that has that on, too!

    No one has mentioned Tarzan yet - "You'll Be in my Heart" (both the slower movie version and the radio full pop version, both Phil Collins), which is a pretty decent rumba, and "Son of Man", which is a great swing.

    Forgot about "Hushabye Mountain", which is a great waltz, from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

    "Once Upon a December"

    DOI, That's right. That song is from the 1997 Meg Ryan-John Cusack animated movie Anastasia--from 20th Century Fox. We considered doing a winter Viennese Waltz showcase to that song some time ago, but it never came to fruition. I preferred the version that appeared in the movie, versus one of the covers of it. The beginning part of the music, to me, suggests falling snow...
