Playlist Management

Line dances come in many varieties. All of these dances can be added to BallroomDJ easily enough, but look at the problem when trying to create a playlist. Each one of the dances has a very low dance count, but each one of the line dances will probably play, whereas what is really wanted is just one or two of the line dances in one evening's session.

Playlist Management

To solve the problem of dance selection, instead of creating multiple dances, only one new dance is created: Line Dance. Now the problem is that the marquee will display Line Dance no matter what type of line dance it is.

Each line dance is edited using the music manager, and the Marquee Display is set to the desired display for the line dance in question. Now when the song is played, the marquee display that is set for the song is displayed rather than Line Dance.
