I've agreed to an extremely last minute "Hoe Down" gig this Saturday for a
local church, where I'm promised 25-75 people of mixed ages. No dance
experience at all.
I've reset their expectation to a family/barn dance - no cowboy outfits on
the performers, no line dances. They asked for some squares - ok. If the
crowd is really that size, I'm all set. Have the material, live music with
a contra and squares, etc. fiddler & piano player. Good to go.
My nightmare is there's only 5 people that show, say: a toddler, a teen, 2
parents and a grandparent. I have a few things I might do with that small
number of inexperienced folks, but not enough to fill 2 (fun) hours.
Any ideas on what you'd do/use in that instance? I'm all ears!
