You Don’t Need A Crystal Ball

Every dancer knows it takes hard work to become a professional ballroom dancer. If you want a career in professional dancesport, there is continuous practice and lessons involved. Don’t we all wish that we had a crystal ball that we could just ask to be the best dancer in town! Well, how about a “genie?!”

Every now and then we might find something out there we think is interesting and worth exploring. I’d like to tell you about Ballroom Genie. Ballroom Genie is a new online dance tool that can be very helpful to you. You know how you go to class and learn dance steps and moves and when you get home you forget exactly how to do them. Well now it is possible to take a subscription and relearn dance steps and moves online as a training aid. How cool is that!

Now it is possible from the comfort of your own home, PC, tablet and even your cell phone to get points on ballroom dance, techniques and a lot more with this new kind of training aid for dancers. You can even watch world class dancers in slow motion.

It’s a great idea to make the most of your practices and lessons, discover new perspectives on dance and learn or re-learn new moves more quickly and with fewer mistakes. They say you can break through tricky parts of your routine, fix places your steps and your partners aren’t fitting together and apply principles from your lessons to a wider range of steps.

If you are interested, go to: to see if Ballroom Genie could be your new, “genie” in a PC, table or cell phone.
