The night after a special dance event, so attendance was light, and everyone left by 8:45.

I tried "John's Folly" by Colin Hume as dance #5, but that failed horribly. After the circle, the middle people kept wanting to face the other direction to start the hey, and I couldn't find a way to teach or prompt it that fixed the problem. I'm still puzzled on this one.
