Getting DanceMaster Software

The DanceMaster Player and DanceMaster Porter are available as  downloads. 

You can download the Basic Edition of DanceMaster for free, and if it meets your needs you can use it indefinitely with my blessing.  (Donations are of course, greatly appreciated.)  If you decide to step up to the Advanced Edition, you can order a registration code, download the Advanced program, and enjoy the additional benefits without loosing the dances you set up in the Basic Edition.

(The Order/Download button is at the bottom of this page.)

DanceMaster Remote Control
