How to use this site

When you click on a category (Tango or Tchaikowski, maybe) you'll get a page that has all the selections that fall into that category. You can do 2 things:
You can click on a title, and you'll get a page with that selection, ready to Play and/or Download. This page also has other info, such as Composer and Tempo, which can also be clicked to see all selections by that Composer or at that Tempo.
Or, instead of clicking on a title, you can click on the top of any blue column, to Sort that column. This sorting can alphabetize Composer (perhaps to find easily all the selections by Chopin) or it can alphabetize Title (perhaps to find all of the versions of The Swan). Sorting the Length column gives you shortest-to-longest, or vice-versa with a second click. (We're still working on Tempo.)

to find Longer Versions or Different Tempos

On a page of results, click on TITLE to alphabetize all the titles for that result.
Compare their Tempos to select a faster or slower version.
Compare Bars or Length for shorter or longer versions.
Or, different arrangements:
Ode To Joy as a Samba or as a Boogie-Woogie, perhaps.
Click on LENGTH to group all the results that last a certain length.

All ballet class rhythms are here.

Every piece here can be used for many different things.
A Moderato Waltz or a Slow 6/8 can support:
Plie, Tendu, any Rond de Jambe (earth or air), Stretching, Adagio, Pirouette, Leaps across the Floor, Reverence, and much more.
Every piece here can be used for many different things!
"Little Jumps", for example, simply means Quick 2/4, and works very well for Degage and others.
And there may not be a button that says JETE on it, but the accompaniment is here (probably in Coda or Big Waltz).
