A very interesting evening. The first dance started with a small crowd (20-ish), as it was hot, with no beginners. About a dozen beginners showed up during the first dance, so I switched to a simple circle mixer. And then another sixteen beginners showed up during the second dance, so things went downhill. I greatly simplified "ABC" by Erik Hoffman. But the dances remained very challenging, even considering the newcomers.
During the break I found out they were all from one person's birthday party, and they had been drinking. That explained a lot.
The second half ended a little early as people tired out.
