A very rough night. An ONS school dance, of about age 10 and down (including siblings as young as 3 years old.) Unlike last time, about half of them were running around chasing each other and fighting while their parents sat in the background being very loud.

Most dances only marginally worked. In a big circle, I couldn't get them to circle. The scatter dances were hopeless. The longways, aside from Favors the Rose, were mixed results.
