Here in Charlottesville there's this concern with the governing board
that the last (and perhaps) middle waltz is a major cause of
apprehension for the beginning dancers. The concern is that they
might feel left out during the waltz.
In order to deal with this the board has decided this:
Callers should ask the band to play a last waltz BUT should not
announce it as such. To announce the last waltz as a last waltz is
to make the beginners feel left out. If you don't announce it then
everything is fine.
Has anything like this come up in your dance community? I am trying
to have an open mind.
