Here is one I made up on the spot one night for a dwindling crowd at a
one-night-stand gig in a summer beach community on the Maine Coast. It's a
triplet, and I call it the Ocean Park Shuffle, after the name of the town
that hosted the dance.
A1 Long Lines(Lines of three) go forward and back
Partners do si do
A2 Partners balance and swing
B1 Top 2 couples star left 1x
Bottom 2 couples star right 1x
B2 Top 2 couples circle left
Top couple cast down to the bottom of the set (I don't actually know if
that's the right term - they go down the outside of the set to the bottom,
no one follows them)
I've used it a couple times since in similar situations.

Subject: [Callers] Low Numbers
I am wondering if you have any dances for low numbers of dancers (perhaps 6
or less), when most or all of the dancers are beginners and adults. I am
also wondering if you have any dances (presumably different dances), that do
not require choosing a partner and are good openers for beginner adults.
Thanks as always to all,
