    Is real hard to answer this question because I don't know what type of dancing you are trying to do.

    If you want to do "jazz dancing" -- then I am afraid I don't know anything much about this subject.

    However, a great deal of Jazz came from the pre-rock and roll "standards" (google "Great American Songbook") and one of the great interpreters of these songs is Frank Sinatra.

    These songs lend themselves to many different type of ballroom dances. (Foxtrot, Swing/Jitterbug, also some of the traditional latin dances).

    Here's a Youtube for a whole set of different Frank Sinatra Songs -- most are a little slower, but all can be danced to:

    Or if you are looking for something a little faster (and "jazzier") which is the soundtrack for so many swing dances, take a look at Duke Ellington. Some good songs here are "It don't mean a thing" or "Take the A Train" or "Satin Doll"

    Good luck.
