    Outside of the clubs which scene is the biggest in your area?

    Right now I'd say WCS is probably the biggest here though this is not saying that it's huge. I wanted to say ballroom, but it's up and down as far as attendance at the studio dances is concerned.

    I would have to say that ballroom, salsa and swing are very close, and it would be difficult to say which is bigger here in Atlanta.

    Here in Boston, I think ballroom is the biggest, but that may be because it's composed of multiple subscenes that don't interact all that much.

    Salsa would be next if you included clubs, but I'm not sure there's much of it done outside of clubs. Argentine tango and swing might be bigger than salsa-minus-clubs ... any particular reason why clubs are being excluded?

    I think in most places this is where you're going to find most dancing and much of it being hip hop and rock and roll so that's why I mean for the question to be aside from these - if there's any place where this is not the case I'd love to pay a visit. :mrgreen:

    Salsa is the largest here. Then there would swing overall, followed by ballroom. Last would be argentine tango.

    I actually think ballroom, salsa and swing are about equally sized here. Contra dancing is probably next followed by vintage and Argentine tango. The country dancing scene, I have no clue but I also guess it has a large following.

    I would have to say ballroom and salsa. Salsa may be a little bit bigger because there a bunch of mexican restaurants that have salsa night and I guess they are packed on those nights. (I'm not allowed to go to these events...at least for a couple of years :wink: )

    I forgot about the contra/vintage/historical/folk scene. Added up, it's probably bigger than the swing scene here, but I don't think any individual part is that big.

    Hmmm I'd say salsa although swing isn't far off.
