WARNING: WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING SUBMISSIONS. THIS FORM IS BEING PROVIDED ONLY FOR HISTORICAL REASONS. DO NOT FILL IN THE SURVEY FORM

Hi fellow swing dancers,

Iím Li Hsien, a swing dancer from Singapore, and now in New York getting a degree in international affairs at Columbia University.

I have a big request. Iíd like to get your help for a project that Iím doing for school. Iím taking a statistics class where I am required to analyze variables and find correlations between them. To make this project more interesting and relevant (to me) I thought it would fun to get some swing statistics that I could analyze. So I designed this survey form with the help of my dance partner Eric (heís the computer brain of the two of us) and ask that you take a few minutes to fill it in and send it to me.

What I propose is that in return for your help, Iíll send the results Iíve gathered to your webmaster to post on your local swing website. Some of the questions relate to my project. But I have also added some others which I thought might be of interest to swing dancers generally.

Iíd really appreciate your help. Iím planning to gather the information over the next two weeks, and will send out the analyzed results sometime after Christmas when my finals are over.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Li-Hsien Lim
