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!

Exciting new design coming soon!

news May 24, 2018


Another month comes to an end. This May was filled with many interesting things. We made exciting new contacts, one of them being the UI/UX designers from RED Academy Vancouver. We are always concerned about you and your experience with our ballet music app Ballegro Player. We never stop learning; we constantly try to improve our product. The UI/UX designers went and 
asked several ballet teachers, like the lovely ballet teacher Eva Carius at Harbour Dance Centrewhat our app needs to be more user-friendly. We have been researching to make sure the app offers the best possible experience.



The research included preliminary research (existing feedback and beta tests), some interviews, the designers even got into ballet classes to observe and put their research into context.
