I use Glowworm Mixer for the first dance at almost any new ONS event.  It
is super easy and people who are hesitant jump right in when they see how
easy it is.  One does need a partner, but as it is a mixer, it doesn't
really matter who it is and people don't hesitate to just grab someone and
jump in.  It is only a 16 beat dance so you repeat the dance four time for
every one time through the tune.  Here it is:

With your partner, promenade CCW in a big circle four steps.  Face your
partner and back up four steps.  Face the person to the left of your
partner and walk towards that person 4 steps.  Allemande L or Right Elbow
Turn with this person once around and end in promenade position face CCW
and the dance begins again from here.

I am the regular caller at a tiny community dance here that will always be
a ONS dance every month ;-).  I have gathered a good collection of super
easy dances.  Here is a link to them if you can use any of them, you're
welcome to them:
