Dance Music  
The Ultimate Ballroom Practice CD by The Dance Store
Here it is: all of your practice music on one CD! Better yet, we selected medium-slow tempo songs that are perfect for beginners. Nothing is more frustrating than having to scavenge for practice music. Finding practice-tempo music is almost impossible because all of the ballroom music producers use the rather fast "standard" tempos dictated by dance competition rules. This CD has everything from salsa and merengue to the "Beer Barrel Polka!" Obviously, with 48 tracks per CD, the selections are short: all less than 2.5 minutes. This CD can also help you learn how to count the music. Many tracks have a "voiceover" where the step timing is called out in time to the music. Learning to dance is challenging enough without the frustration of practicing with tempos that are too fast for beginners. These tempos are about 10% below the speed of "standard" tempo. These tracks also capture the "character" of each dance. Note: the tracks on this CD are not popular, "original artist," commercially available selections. Instead, they are specially arranged short pieces designed for practice.
