"Music for across-the-floor is hard," says Jump Dance Convention teacher Nick Lazzarini. "You need to find something that's the right tempo for direction changes, weight change and pas de bourrée. That will vary depending on the exercise and skill level of the dancers you're working with. To help, I've created a great '90s playlist that I like to use whenever I teach across-the-floor."
