I would like to second Val's comment about the first dance being a
simple one for all, and put in a special plea against Grand Marches that
end up in sets for the first dance. Many people wish to do the Grand
March with the person what brung 'em, but don't wish to do the first
dance, either because they are non-dancers, injured, too elderly, or
whatever. A waltz after the Grand March/national anthems, before the
first dance is called, handles the problem gracefully. Any comment from
March Devisors or other dancers?
