Dancing in the rain

Embrace the winter weather with In Tune's specially curated playlist for dancing in the rain.

November downpours needn't mean melancholy! Embrace the winter weather with In Tune's specially curated playlist for dancing in the rain. Celebrate the energy and excitement of the driving rain with music from Respighi, Shostakovich, and Borodin. Dance along to the rhythmic pitter-patter of raindrops in Debussy's 'Jardins sous la pluie' and Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians. Twirl in the tempest with Vivaldi and jump in puddles to Strauss's Thunder and Lightning Polka.
