Modern Folk Dance Skin

I have created a skin which is very innovative and designed for a special purpose. It is designed to be helpful for teachers and recreational dancers. As such it removes most unnecessary "features" which could be "gotchas", and substitutes or adds features designed to be helpful for users who are either programming a dance session or who are trying to teach dances, or practice material.

To this end dance interruption has been minimized. Memory features have been added to skin to allow you to repeat just a section of the material or to start at a specific point and stop at another so you can practice just a section without having to hunt for it each time.

The look of the skin was not important so it is obviously based on the Winamp Modern Skin but there is extensive programming to add or remove features. Actually all standard features are available, but some have been demoted to secondary menus because they are not very useful for the special intended purposes.

But just for fun, the color scheme and some seasonal decorations were added, with the ability to roll your own.

Incidentally International folk dancing is virile vigorous dancing, and not necessarily square or polka dancing. It can be slow, fast, frenetic, funny, bittersweet, and above all fun, non fattening, and legal.
