What's Being Taught across Sydney (June)
(If you teach or attend a class in the Greater Sydney region that's not here, please
email me what's taught so I can add them in!)
Dances in italics are those for the earlier month. A "*" after the dance means the choreographer taught the dance. A '#'  before the club's name means I've not received any teaches for the month in question.
