Subject: RE: What makes a good caller?
Another sort of mixer dance is the "New Mexico" wedding dance.

line of men, facing a line of women and an odd man (usually man) holding a broom. Odd person dances with the broom between the lines until music stops, drops broom grabs nearest partner (chooses during dance) and everyone then tries for a partner, polkas around until music changes (caller in controll) and the odd one left repeats with broom. Partners not required though numbers must be right.

BTW

Stroud Ceilidhs have the Jam & Crumpet Band in April who's line-up just happens to include a certain Mr Crum and some of his Steamchicks.
