There is always the very progressive, circle version of Virginia Reel. Rh turn once &
a half L the next, 2 hand the next, do-ce-do the next, swing the next, promenade (and move
on?). You only meet half the members unless you throw in a random gender switch.
Would Dargason work to meet absolutely everyone in your line? It would involve too much
standing around for a large class to do in one set.

Can you be more specific, Seth? Are you talking about you, the caller, introducing
yourself? Or (more likely in my mind) asking each dancer to introduce themself to the
others? (Sounds like a plain old mixer to me.)
And I'm not sure what kind of class you mean. A pre-dance lesson? A workshop at a
dance camp? A classroom of students at a school residency?
I want to help, but I'm having trouble visualizing what you have in mind.
