I use the Terpsichore at the Tower cheat-sheet booklet.  I know
someone who downloaded it, but I can't find it right now.
Often, though, they only help me if I already know the dance and need
a reminder.

I've always been fond of Half Hannigan for a warmup.
- it's vigorous without being exhausting (if your music isn't too
- it's the prototypical English Country Dance, consisting of nothing
   BUT doubling, siding, and arming
- it's a mixer, so it's good for "how do you do?" or a brief "hi,
   Jane, long time no see!"
