An interesting evening. I was a last-minute fill in after the regular caller contacted me in the morning because she was too sick. The two junior callers were already going to call three dances each, thankfully, as due to a number of botches there were no microphones. So we did the whole evening without electronic amplification to about 26 dancers. Another learning experience, including discovering if one set is very weak, you're doomed to calling "Terpsicourante" heavily all four times through.

It was my first go at "Dunant House Waltz," and I quite liked that dance.
