What is a popular dance?
One that appears frequently on dance programs?
Not necessarily. When compiling a program, one is obliged to take
into account the accessibility of the dance instructions. Therefore
one has to use the ones in Pillings and the RSCDS booklets, which
most keen dancers have or can get hold of. I imagine that it is only
the teachers that collect other publications, which means that other
dances will appear during classes and weekend schools rather than at
Perhaps The dance survey should be renamed "widely-used dances" ?
