People have been dancing to music for centuries — just in different styles. 

In the Middle Ages, it was most common for instruments like the flute and harp to be played during folk dances. In the Swing Era, Big Bands performed while couples danced the jitterbug or Lindy Hop. Toward the end of the 20th century, genres like disco, hip hop, and EDM emerged to inspire more new styles of dance. 

The main takeaway here? Dance music has always been a diverse and evolving genre. 

If you’re searching for a specific type of royalty free dance music, we’ve put together a roundup of different playlists and songs to help you find what you need sooner. If you still don’t find exactly what you want, we’re also sharing tips on filtering through our music catalog.

 

5 dance-worthy playlists from Soundstripe

Royalty free dance music is fast paced, high energy, and rhythmically charged. It is also slow paced, acoustic, and somber. Since there are so many different styles of dance, both of these statements hold true. 

And because dance music is diverse by nature, you need plenty of options when it comes to licensing royalty free music for upcoming projects. That’s why we’re sharing five of our top playlists at Soundstripe.

By starting with one of our playlists, you’ll instantly get a curated selection of the types of songs that are most relevant to your search. Not only that, but once you’re in the music catalog, you can include and exclude additional filters to narrow down the results even more. 

For example, let’s say you want to license a low energy romantic song from the Jazz playlist, but you don’t necessarily want music with a mellow feel. You can include and exclude these specific filters to get results like this:

A great thing about our filter functions is that you can layer as many (or as few) filters as you want. So each time you add a filter, you’re curating the library to your specific taste. This makes the prospect of sorting through thousands of songs much less intimidating.
