    I'm no PR person, but how about:
    "Come and dance at Anglesey Abbey this afternoon.  Scottish Country
    Dancing is so popular here right now, that in this area alone, you can
    choose from 17 dances, and that's just today."
    The full program of 17 dances is on our website...
    It is quite easy to conflate "dance event" and "dance sequence".  You
    are right, it is harder to make "dancer" mean "dance event"
