    Re: Re: Pre-Booking (was Cribs)

    I have my parents dance programs going back to university in the 20's,
    but at least they had a choice.
    
    If you read about the dancing about the time of the founding of the
    Edinburgh Assemble, the hostess or the dancing master often issued
    tickets to the dancers which indicated both a set and ones place
    therein. Your partner was your calculated opposite (bribery,
    matchmaking, etc. were part of the game).
    
    It was considered a grave sin to trade your ticket with another just
    to dance with a particular partner.
