Hits - By 2010 the Dancing DJ player, Teacher DJ, had exceeded 500,000 hits (song plays) in each of two different ballrooms.
Origin - The first Dedicated DJ program was written out of necessity when Allegro Ballroom was just opening their doors. The available DJ's wanted more money to play their music then was coming through the gate. Despite many early operational and computer issues it was immediately adopted by two ballroooms. With the addition of the marquee ddj became the dj of choice. The marquee beat all other play systems and all stand alone DJs in the ballroom world.
