Being in charge of a monthly "open band open mic dance," I rarely prepare
-- but I usually have at least a couple of dances in mind, just in case. I
never know if another caller will show up or if a room full of newcomers
will show up. It's a small venue and the regular dancers are forgiving.
For a regular dance, I do like to have a program and start with at least a
sketch of a plan a week in advance. If it's a band I haven't worked with,
,I try to have a plan to them at least a week ahead of the dance. For our
regular musicians, all they want to know is where the Balances are, are
there any Do-Si-Dos (usually a jig), Down the Hall & Back or Hey, and
whether I'm using a Chestnut with its own tune.

I am curious how much time you all plan programming a
arriving at a venue. If you do not preprogram, what is your approach for
on the fly programming?
