Worldwide Dance Instruction Survey

December 2019
Results published 30th January 2020

Hey Everyone! This survey marks the end of my 6th year as the coordinator! It seems like yesterday when I called my best dance friend, Ben Heggy, and asked if he thought I should take it on....something very Ben-like came out of his mouth...."F-Yeah!" Many of you know Ben passed away over 4 years ago, but he's been with me every month as I plow through all of this pleasurable data.

This month, EVERYONE took a break! So, let's give a shout out to the instructors who actually taught, and actually sent in their data! I bet you'll find some gems that would have been hidden way down the previous month's survey!

Here's your survey!

Here are the results from the December, 2019 World Dance Instruction survey. 20 instructors from 3 Countries (US, Japan & Austria, including 6 US States) sent in 146 dances and 194 teaches.

Asterisks following the location of some of the dances mark that this teach was done by the dance's choreographer.

Survey compiled by Edie Driskill,, 614-214-7199 (Ohio, USA).

Congratulation to Fred Whitehouse for the most taught dance in the survey
