Keith Bryan Writes: Dude, you sent an awesome letter and T shirts? You didn’t have tot do that. That was above and beyond and way cool and awesome. Thank you!!! Also, thank you for your efforts in getting the list up and running so that we had them for Friday night’s middle school dance. We had complements on the good clean music from a rep from another school and she took our business cards. That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout!!!!. YOU DA’ MAN!!!!!!
SDN: THANKS! Always anxious to help make school dances safe, fun and age-appropriate. We appreciate quality operators like you, going the extra mile. 2/16/15
BTW…Love your Jam-Mobile
Clean lyrics, subject matter… not so much While some of the “Safe Songs” certainly don’t contain major swear words (though in my neck of the woods, “damn” is still not acceptable, either), it should be pointed out for those not in the know, sometimes the ideas and actions mentioned in the songs may not be appropriate for a school venue. I don’t think this is necessarily stressed strongly enough when listing the weekly songs. This weeks “safe song”, “Uptown Funk” is a prime example. Ignoring the fact that the chorus repeatedly says “hot damn” in the first 40 seconds of the song, there’s a line that says, “Fill my cup put some liquor in it.” I’m not sure about your school, but mine would certainly frown upon me setting that example. So please, folks, be sure and listen to these songs first. This site is an awesome resource, but there’s still no resource like the one between your ears. November 19 2014
Our guide at the SDN is to eliminate songs that promote or glorify, sex, drugs/alcohol or violence. Just references to them is not enough to eliminate the song from the “Safe Songs” . But as Micah states, every school, region and administration has a different standard.
Keep up the great work and give us more!!! Ric, I am SO stoked about being a member of SDN. I haven’t had any inquiries from my listing, but the offerings I receive each week for DNPs as well as the Safe Songs Top 30 give me great information. I ALSO utilize much of your content to pass along on social networks or my blog. I would encourage the SDN staff to post MORE of the school dance stories for sharing. Be it stories of DJs who don’t use good judgement in playing for schools or other stories regarding content like twerking, panty checks and etc. — by reposting this via other members, I believe the membership of SDN can help increase awareness of this organization among concerned parents as well as school (& church) leaders and administration. Keep up the fantastic work! — This e-mail was sent from a contact form on school dance network November 8 2014

Science has helped to determine the best dance moves and now can help men to dance better. Nice to know it doesn’t include twerking, grinding, freaking. 3-D models show us how it is done. https://youtu.be/2x7bMzDPDbs
