Hi, Dianna
This is O.K. occasionally but have you ever come across a group
that does not appear to like traditional dances or music and ends up
doing nothing but silly / awkward ones or those with ersatz music ?
It all becomes too much !
I have felt for some time that quite a bit of the modern music
composed for dances is by those with little understanding of what
really makes the music suitable for SCD.

Cheers, Ron :)
