Jim and I usually follow the first, last, maybe a special dance with each
other rule, but as Edwin says, sometimes local folks in certain places
don't ask others to dance. Then Jim may dance more with me because we go
to enjoy dancing, and he doesn't want to see me sit out dance after dance.
I do ask other men and women to dance, but once in awhile you get that,
"Well, I suppose I could, but why are you asking me to dance?" look. I
must add, that doesn't happen often, or in many places.
I really enjoy the sociability of SC, meeting new people, dancing with new
people. Also, when you are encouraging new people to learn SCD, they'll
often ask if they need to have a partner. If the answer to that is yes,
then you're going to lose some prospective dancers.
