This is very much blowing my own horn here, but it IS a solution.
The DanceData database, if loaded on your PC, can be used to search for all
2-couple dances (if required, restricting the search to those dances for which
one has the instructions and/or recorded music).
Of course, this is not a lot of use if you are in the class, waiting for that
elusive 3rd couple and you don't have your laptop with you. However, one could
prepare such a list and print it out, ready for the occasion.
