If my feeling is good, it's pronounced with an /æ/ in American, isn't it? --Ferike333 19:00, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes. —Stephen 19:41, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
Although, Australia usually follows the British accent as in France, plant, class, etc. - (/ɑ:/). It's /dæns/ in Australia as well, more common than /dɑ:ns/. /dɑ:ns/ sounds a bit obsolete or too educated to me even from a British English speaker. Must be the American influence. Worth adding a variant - /dæns/? Anatoli 23:57, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
I think it should be added. Actually, as non-native, I've never heard it pronounced with an /ɑ:/ before watching a movie which can be archaic - I think. Ferike333 16:31, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Actually, now that I was in England, I had to realise, apart from our native teachers who spoke RP, nobody said /dɑ:ns/ but /dæns/ in British English, too. So I separated the pronunciations US and UK, UK has both pronunciations, US has only the one with /æ/. Ferike333 10:50, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
