Ron - no, I've not come across any groups who only do the silly ones -
usually there are only one or two of these thrown in. I enjoy socials/balls
where most of the dancers know most of the dances quite well (whether
silly/traditional and/or both) so they can enjoy making eye contact and
having better footwork.
