I’ve never been much of a dancer (understatement of the year) but I can definitely appreciate the amount of work that has gone into putting this app together, so be sure to take it for a spin if you want to perfect your set dances.

You Choose the Tempo

Making a beautiful addition to the Music category of the App Store is this app which provides a wealth of musical resources for Irish dancing, with dances available from 60 bpm all the way up to 160 bpm depending on the style.

Within this app you’ll find championship and traditional hornpipe and jig speeds, with music from more than 35 championship set dances and another eight different traditional set dances for you to work though.

Championship and Traditional Set Dances

Set Dances includes championship set dances such as The Vanishing Lady and The Charlady, and the developer assures us that all of the musical tracks were made to be in sync with a metronome for the utmost in accuracy.

I can’t comment on the dances themselves because I really haven’t the faintest clue about anything even remotely dance-orientated, but the content is certainly delivered in a very professional manner with a polished interface that runs very smoothly as far as I can tell.
