MALAYSIA'S MOST POPULAR CHOREOGRAPHERS & LINE DANCES 2013

In a few days' time, we will be at the final bend going into the home stretch to the finishing line.

The most popular choreographer for 2013 is a three-horses race with only 2 dances separating the first and third place. The contenders for the title are last year's winner, Rachael McEnaney, Simon Ward and Ria Vos. Popular Malaysian choreographer, GS Ang is in fourth place at the moment.

In the Malaysian category, the title is within GS Ang's grasp unless the unexpected happens. Far behind is Jaszmine Tan in second place.

For the most popular line dance of the year, Rock Paper Scissors by Maggie Gallagher and Jennifer Choo's Private Affair are tied in first place followed closely by Outta Control by Simon Ward.

In the Malaysia catergory, Let's Dance For Fun by BM Leong is making a late charge for the title.

For next year's survey, the foreign categories will be stopped as it involved too many dances ( 3000 line dances ) to be tabulated.
