About a third beginners, so there was a fair amount of program reshuffling. When the smoke cleared I realized I'd done four very similar down-the-hall dances (slots 1, 4, 10, and 13), though the main figure in each was different enough that nobody personally complained.

After surveying dancers from an online poll, we were getting complaints that the dances were running too long, so I ran these 13-15 times each. Hence the extra dance in the second half.
