The Best Musical Theater Songs For Dancers

This post may contain affiliate links that allow us to earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.

We love being entertained by a fantastic, adorable, well-delivered musical theater piece and it appears it is a favorite among our readers as well.  We have been inundated with Musical Theater song requests and have decided instead of making a bunch of separate playlists, that we would create one large playlist and continue to add songs to it throughout the coming months.  Check out Spotify to listen to the songs on our musical theater songs playlist.
