Two days ago I was at the Houston, Texas ball and experienced the annoyance that pre-booking causes. After each dance I would thank my partner, return to my seat, write her name down, and then go find a partner for the next dance. Frequently I would have a difficult time finding a partner due to so many people finding partners right after the dance ended and even before looking at the dance listing to find out what was next. So what I did was memorize the name of the dance preceding the one I intended to take a restroom break for and left after it ended. That way I knew that I didn't need to look at the dance roster to make sure that I knew the dance well becuase I had arranged to be conveniently absent during the dance which I was not prepared for. This way I could stay in the middle of the dance floor the whole time and be sure to get the partner I wanted for the next dance. It worked rather well and I got to dance with several of the excellent dancers who were always taken previously.
