    Re: Floor space per set?

    We have a 20 ft by 32 ft stage we use at various Scottish Games. A 
    single demonstration team dancing a square set dance can easily use 
    most of it, especially in the 20 ft direction. Three sets can fit 
    side by side comfortably if you're willing to forgo any dances with 
    down the middle and back (i.e., "up" and "down" are in the 20 ft 
    direction. I think I've seen four sets on it for audience 
    participation, i.e., 10 feet per set in width and 16 feet per set in 
    length. But that's pretty crowded, and again, the lower sets have no 
    room for down the middle and back.
