Musician Mark Ballas has hit the scene with a great new song called Get My Name. Get My Name features a terrific groove, a 122 bpm tempo, and is perfect for your next jazz or tap dance routine. Squirrel Trench offers three original remix-edit versions of this fun song at lengths of 2:45, 2:30, and 2:00. These unique remixed and edited versions do not exist anywhere else, and are only available from Squirrel Trench Audio via Legitmix.
Meghan Trainor has already scored a big hit with her upbeat single, All About That Bass, even before her album has officially been fully released. Another song, with an infectious groove, from that album is “Your Lips Are Movin”. With a fantastic beat, and fun lyrics, this song is going to make your jazz dance or tap dance routine soar. We have three lengths available: 2:48, 2:32, and 1:58.
Here are five songs, each with a taptastic groove. Each of these songs is already edited to the right length for competition (two-minute versions for recitals are also available for most of them).

Ghouls, ghosts and goblins will appear at your doorway tonight, and if you have dancers who would delight in dancing a routine with deliciously macabre music, we have some selections that would be perfect in our Legitmix store. Here are our spooky and/or creepy offerings:
Button: The payoff moment in a song; the moment when the song is “buttoned up” and finished.
On Broadway, music composers know that nearly all of the time, they need to deliver a button on their songs…. that point in the music when the audience knows the song is over, and it’s time to applaud. The same concept applies when editing music for performance dance routines. When a song fades out, your audience is robbed of the routine’s button. That’s why Squirrel Trench Audio retains the ending of the original song so that the button is delivered to your dancer. The audience knows the routine is over and it’s time to clap.
There are times when a song might have a big musical finish that lasts 20 seconds or more. These type of endings, while great in a music performance, are too long for a dance performance. In such cases, we will edit down the big finish into an appropriate length for the dance routine.
The latest episode of Dancing With The Stars, Season 19, episode 9, aired tonight (10/27/2014). Here are two songs featured in the show, edited to be the perfect length for your next dance routine. Secret by The Pierces is perfect for a macabre contemporary routine, and Come With Me Now by Kongos works as a jazz or tap routine.
A hot new artist has just arrived on the scene from Sweden. Dirty Loops is a trio of talented musicians bringing an avant garde twist to popular music. Their first single is Hit Me. This song will be spectacular for a small group, large group, line, or production, in either jazz or tap. It could also work for a very advanced soloist in jazz or tap. Squirrel Trench Audio has three versions available on Legitmix:
Because Squirrel Trench Audio’s mission is to eliminate less-than-ideal music edits for dancers everywhere, we are giving away a FREE* edit of Try by Colbie Caillat. How does this work? How can we legally give away a free edit of a published song? Legitmix is a new service that enables remixers to sell their services legally. The service checks to see if the buyer already owns the song(s) used in the edit or remix legally. If so, then the buyer can purchase the edit/remix. If not, you have to buy the song(s) used in the remix from iTunes, and then you can also buy the remix. Remixers have the option to give away their work for free, and we have chosen to do so to announce our launch into this new arena.
Now available for free* on Legitmix: Colbie Caillat’s Try, edited for a 2:36 lyrical dance routine length.
Taylor Swift is about to release a new album called 1989. As of today, only two tracks are available, but the full album is due October 27, 2014.

With Legitmix, you can purchase these edited songs at a very low price; in this case, $5. Legitmix will verify that you have also purchased Taylor Swift’s original version of this song from iTunes. If you haven’t already purchased it, you can do so at the regular price.
