    Well, this is sort of on topic.
    
    We could report number of times a dance was danced. That would of
    course be a separate count for each set. So, say 9 sets per event, 20
    events per year including (say) The Robertson Rant and we have:
    --------------------------------------------------
    The Robertson Rant was danced 180 times last year. That's nearly every
    second day, even if you go easy on Xmas/New Year. And that's just one
    dance. And just in USA/Germany/CountryX. When you consider more than
    10 thousand dances in the current RSCDS collection and worldwide
    membership, this makes for a lot of demand on slipstop.
