I was asked to call at the Portland Artquake festival in 1995 which placed me and a band in front of about 2000 spectators whom I was expected to encourage to Contra dance. We had about 50 “dancers” in the crowd. They each took a beginner as a partner so every couple had one experienced dancer. In this dance, partners have an easy time keeping track of each other and it’s a nice, easy dance for beginners.
