Music at the Starlight Ball
« on: August 12, 2014, 07:56:58 AM »
I'll be brutally honest, is the music for this years ball going to be the same as last years summer ball?

Cause last years was pretty bad. Dancing to actual game/anime background music was a bit undance able. 

Is this years ball going to be more danceable songs, or is it more WoW background music that's kind of sounds danceable?

Hey, I got some good news!

Recently the Starlight Ball has changed to new management with the person who also runs the dance workshops, and since then we revised the entire playlist.

Each song is now hand picked by our team of Professional Ballroom dance instructors.
Each song now coordinates with the dances taught at the workshops. (Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, East Coast Swing, Salsa, ChaCha, Rumba, etc)
The dance that goes with the song is now projected on the wall with the projector.
We've done so still keeping their tradition of all the music being anime/video game/asian
We check the tempo of each song to make they fit with the social tempo of each dance and if not and if possible we adjust the tempo of a song to make it work will do so.
We are always looking for new songs to add to the play list. If you have any song requests please send the song or link to the song to StarlightBall@SacAnime.com This way I can quickly have it reviewed by our team of Ballroom Instructors, adjusted if needed, and a slide to be projected for it.

Definitely come back again and check out the new playlist. Under the new management we are looking to have the Dance Instructors and Dance Community more involved. We've started incorporating dances mixers, and working on some professional performances.
