First half was a challenging dancing crowd.

I learned a few things about the scatter mixer "Mad Scatter" -- first couples who join in a circle shouldn't break up a partner pair, or panic insues. Second, it's okay to tell people without a partner to look for someone else lost nearby. But that doesn't help much when the shortest dancer in the room is constantly the single person left out.
