Each year we take a moment to reflect on what songs were most popular at dance competitions across the country.  This is for fun and is certainly not scientific in any way.  It is a random sampling of various dance competitions.

Let me clarify that dancing to a more popular song does not mean you won’t score well.  It is all about the combination of technique, unique choreography, and your performance.
