I am the president of a ballroom dance club on a college campus. We are looking for cheap CD's that are just people counting out clear beats to help our dancers get used to hearing the music and assist them in being able to step in time. We teach a couple different dances, so if we could find cd's for dances such as Jitterbug, Cha Cha, Tango, Foxtrot, Rumba, Waltz, etc... that would be a tremendous help. Does anyone know where we can buy some such merchandise?
Helmut Licht recorded an album called RHYTHM MUSIC, which is (or used to be) available through USA Dance (probably under its former name, USABDA, at the time). It has tracks for essentially all the dances that start out with nothing but the rhythm for that dance, followed by a very simple melody added to the rhythm. No counting per se, but it might be close to what you want anyway.
