Music can have a huge influence on your mood and performance, setting the tone for whatever you’re doing. The right song can help you relax, make you smile or make you dance. When training or in dance class, this can have a huge impact on your performance. Research has even shown that listening to music while exercising leads to higher levels of endurance, power, productivity and strength. So let’s put on some of our favorite jams to help improve our performance!
