Sydney's Top Dances for October
(compiled 29th November) See below for previous month

Compiled for the calendar month from play lists of socials & all the Sydney classes I can get teaching lists for (usually over 20 groups)
. Almost all of the main clubs are included most months and many of the minor ones, thus the results below should be fairly accurate (ie: it is not a sampling survey but a compilation from most clubs across the Sydney region). Feel free to submit teaches & socials play lists for inclusion.
*: first appearance; #: 2-5 years old (still hanging around); ## over 5 years old (the eternal classics)
