The final results for this year-long survey are finally here. A total of 52 dance lists was collected from the internet for line dance parties held all over Malaysia. Dance lists without the names of the choreographers are not included for the simple reason that some line dances may be choreographed by multiple choreographers.

The results are based on dance lists collected for the following line dance parties ( workshops are not included for obvious reasons ).

From my observation, choreographers who are very hardworking and wrote many line dances for the year, are usually rewarded for their hard work.
It has been a lot of work for me tabulating the thousands of line dances. For next year, 2014, only the survey for Malaysian Choreographers and Line Dances will be continued. The foreign category will be done away with.
