DanceMaster is a music player designed for rehearsal.

When you rehearse, you often need to play part of a piece of music over and over again, you need to be able to quickly jump to important points in the piece, and you need to be able to take notes at specific points in the music. DanceMaster is optimized to help you easily break down, practice, memorize, and teach choreographies:

Again!

Every time you pause the music, DanceMaster returns to the last place you started playing.  This makes it easy to practice to a section of the music over and over again.

Five, Six, Seven, Eight...

DanceMaster allows you to set cues in the music that you can easily jump to at any time. In addition, you can add a configurable lead-in time to all cues in a choreography.  The lead-in time sets the jump point for each cue a little before the actual cue time, giving you time to count in, but keeping your cue marks where they should be.

Rehearsal Speed

You can easily change the tempo of the song for a choreography. Tempo adjustment can be turned on and off without losing the selected tempo, which is great for switching between rehearsal and performance tempos.

If you supply the original tempo for a piece of music (either via the "BPM" field in iTunes, or by setting it directly in the app), DanceMaster will show you tempo adjustments and cue lead-ins in beats instead of seconds. 

Call It For Me

To help you memorize a choreography, DanceMaster can speak your cue names during playback, so you don't need to look at the screen or your notes while you rehearse.

Remote Controlled

DanceMaster now includes an Apple Watch app that allows you to control the music, jump to defined cues, and even change the tempo without having to go back to your phone. It's perfect for active rehearsals.

DanceMaster also works with Control Center and can be controlled with any remote that works with iOS, including the standard iPhone earbud controls and external Bluetooth remotes.
