I think a nice way to look for a partner for the next dance, is to have a
quick look around after the sets are complete for the dance at hand.
Those who are sitting out this dance might like an invitation for the
next. You run in to a few people who don't want to dance due to a sore
foot or to inexperience, but you get to meet a lot of new people this way.
