        I have to agree about all this pre-booking dances. When I travel, I enjoy 
    the company of many new faces and dancers. It is disappointing to ask a new 
    person, only to hear they have been booked already. At one workshop, which I 
    will not mention, I had to sit out 3 dances because I could not get a 
    partner. It's strange as I always have had to hide otherwise, to avoid 
    getting asked. 
        I am guilty of some pre-booking but it is usually with my students who 
    have never danced at a ball or other social function. "Paying my dues" is not 
    a chore, however. But I do leave my card free for new people whenever I can.
