I was browsing for interesting tidbits and came across this article explaining the Country Line Dance craze in France... http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article4036375.ece
It appears the trend is so widespread that the government will be implementing control measures to regulate instructors and training courses. For example, professional teachers will be required to have 600 hours of courses under their belt buckles.
Does your home country have a Country-Western trend or sub-culture? I have heard of such trends existing in Australia, The United kingdom, Brazil, Japan, etc.
