    Re: Pre-booking

    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.
