Having just recently launched Version 3 of our app on our website, one of our most important tasks lately has been to share Ballegro with the world! AND with dance competition season heading into full swing, what better way to do this than to get involved with these festivals! We have contacted many competitions that tour across Canada in order to reach out and let our dance audiences know that we are here to help them out!
Ballegro Player is music streaming app that recreates the experience of having a Live Pianist. It features an ever-expanding Ballet Music Library with a unique Music Player; it lets you adjust the tempo and helps dance teachers or any dancer to practice in the tempo that they need. Moreover, you can upload your own music, and play your personal music collection while accessing all the Ballegro features. Our Smart Virtual Ballet Pianist helps dancers find their ideal music for practice by exercises, by lengths, by rhythms, by genres, by pianists and by PDB endtag options. It is a creation and experience, that models after how a ballet pianist thinks, by providing an ever-expanding Music Library, Smart Search Filters, and a built-in Music Player designed to optimize teaching and allow dancers to practice anywhere, anytime, any tempo.
We are very excited to be teaming up with some festivals to spread the word about our app! Our most recent discussions have included collaborations between Danceabition and Millennium Dance Festival.
Danceabition is in:
Sydney, NS: March 29-21
