    Our recital theme is Broadway this year. My ballet class is using Hopelessly devoted to you from the 2007 grease revival. Our lyrical class is using with out you from Rent. Hip hop is the most difficult to find, your best bet is to find a remix of a Broadway song. The Tupac musical hasn't started yet so you probably can't use music from that one.

    Good Broadway Songs

  • 7 years ago

    I really think someone should do A Little Party Never Killed Nobody from The Great Gatsby soundtrack it's dying to be performed onstage and it has the hip hop feel you'd want. It's a Fergie song after all. If it HAS to be Broadway then try Be Italian from Nine. (Fergie also did this in the movie adaptation).

    Jet black hair. I have really dark brown hair and I consider dark hair looks better. I may really like blonde hair.

    Okker would really suite you in my opinion. It looks really pretty as well as it has a style that's really noticeable. You'd look good with this.
