    More sensible comments (below) from Sylvia!  I've been dancing for decades, 
    and I am trying to remember a dance, a simple monthly dance with recorded music 
    or a much grander ball with musicians, whereïn consistently throughout the 
    whole evening the entire floor was cleared (to where?) between dances.  I'm not 
    certain that I am even able to recall any such thing in its extreme.  I can 
    well imagine the scenario described by Sylvia (below), for which many seem to be 
    wishing, creating much more of a not-so-elegant stampede at the announcement 
    of the next dance than the calm and genteel thanking of one's partner for the 
    dance just finished, then either locating a prebooked partner or asking 
    someone within sight spontaneously for the next one, and reorganizing without great 
    rush into new sets.
