Dear Erere,

I don't understand if you need a song to dance to or if you intend to compose a musical piece. If what you want is to write the song yourself, you need to have some musical understanding.

We have a page at our website that explains basic knowledge that you use when composing music for dance. I think you should read it and then decide if you will compose the song or if you will ask a musician to do it for you.

This is the link to that page:

Contemporary Dance Music

If what you need is a song to dance to, there's always the option to choose one that already exists. That will facilitate your task, especially if you are in a hurry for this.

As you said, jamendo.com is a good place to search for royalty free music that you can use for non commercial purposes. If this is your case, I would recommend that you visit that website again and insist on your search. There are a lot of options to choose in it.

I also have colleagues that create music on command. One of them could do the work for you, but s/he would need you to read the page I am recommending you, so that you can provide the right specifications of what you need. And that would have a fee (that's the musicians' job, right?).

If you want to try that, read the page about contemporary dance music and then write me back, providing an e-mail address where I can contact you. You can do this also through the contact me form of contemporary-dance.org. I will then tell you what to do.

I hope this helps and I'll be attentive for the case you decide to answer back.

Warm regards,

Maria
