||"Brief and Go Roulette" Social Dancing
We've got every dance that's been done more than once during the last 10 years of Failte Balls on index cards. We'll do a random draw and brief the dance from the original ball notes. Then your set can have a brief huddle to discuss any issues. We'll brief-brief again, put the music on, and see what happens. Points will be awarded to any set where everyone ends the dance with their original partner. Double points to any set that doesn't, but uses their performance recovery skills to make it look as if they totally meant to do that. 7:30pm at Tapestry Folkdance Center.
