Sorry, I guess I just don't relate to this problem. In the 12 years our
young branch [all right, "local association"--who's idea was it to replace
a nice 1 syllable name with a 7 syllable treatise?] has been around, it has
never occurred to anyone here to end a dance program with a Strathspey. I
love Strathspeys, but not for the last dance. Always something snappy and
preferrably ending with a circle, but not necessarily. It has nothing to do
with elitism, just what we think is a fun way to end a party.
