Amen to last 2 posts.

Flora,
I'm always happy for anything I put online to be repeated elsewhere and I would imagine most people are.

Yes, quote anything I've said - though I think the best tips were in the first 2 replies.
Just back from a wedding in a venue with lots of rooms. Good job the musicians could play accoustically while walking. We used a Farandole to get enough up for the last dance.

I have to plead guilty as a grumpy caller. I once had to fairly forceably remind a youngster ( old enough to know better)not to run across the dance floor while others were dancing. It was a health and safety issue and I was quite concerned. It wasn't about the dancing though.

For same gender groups or bias I use "Tall People" and "Small People" and then add in "unless you think otherwise" (in case there are men who are shorter than their partner) and that way you get mostly chaps on the "proper" side but actually I don't really use this unless the dance is really gender specific or side specific and I try and avoid those dances if I can.
