Recent Inspiration From Music And Dance

I know, I know. I’ve done on several posts of playlists to inspire your writing – click here for the most recent. But lately I’ve been reminiscing on certain songs and watching videos of amazing choreography that have really inspired me and allowed my imagination to run rampant.

Yes, I’ve also been inspired by dance. Dancing tells a story without words, utilizing the whole body to express emotions and communicate. So I just had to share with a few videos I’ve been playing on repeat recently.

I hope you enjoy these videos and, perhaps, find some inspiration for your writing or other passion.

Writing Playlist #6: Disney Edition (part one)


Music from Disney movies is fantastic, wondrous, and spellbinding. Not only does a song compliment the movie it’s in so perfectly but it stretches the scene within the imagination into something out of this world. Making up a playlist of Disney songs was a must-do. Since this is a part one – because there are SO many Disney songs that I love – this list will contain my absolute faves from the magical world of Disney:
