One of the things that was difficult for me as a beginning ballroom dancer (even though I had decent amount of musical background) was to judge the tempo of a song at the level required to know if the song could be danced to in a particular style. I talked about the tool I created to help me with this in one of my early posts (Question 2: What dance styles can I dance to my favorite songs?) Today I’ve added some more complete documentation for the tempo counter tool.
Another thing that always bugs me is the relationship between the tempi of different dance styles. I created another tool to help me visualized the relationships between dances and also posted some detailed documentation for that tool today.
