I rather enjoyed it when I was starting out (in 1981). Sure, the steps
weren't exactly challenging, but that just made it easier to converse
and flirt with your partner. And it wasn't like there was tons of
complicated dancing being done back then, either. Off the top of my
head I remember Entree-Courante, Mannschaft, a handful of bransles, a
couple of ECDs, and a couple of GOOPs. I'm sure there was more (I could
even look up what it was, if I had the time), but that is what comes
readily to mind.
