Choose easy dances. The music is usually hard enough, and fun enough. Easy can allow for extra flourishes to add even more spice.
Live or mixed recordings? If live then it should be perfectly square AABB. If mixed, the only thing you can count on is 8-beat phrases. Also if mixed you need to listen in advance to know how long the intro is for the first phrase, and keep focus on which phrase you’re in somehow. The specific questions about demos and walk through, yes, sure, depends on the crowd. \Bob Techno DJ/caller > On Mar 28, 2019, at 17:17, Maia McCormick via Callers > <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > Ah, more specific questions! > > - have you found on-the-floor demos doable at techno, or should I not even > try? > - techno no-walk-through's: do they work? > >> On Thu, Mar 28, 2019 at 5:13 PM Maia McCormick <maia...@gmail.com> wrote: >> Hey folks, >> >> I haven't called all that many techno contras, and I'm slated to do so this >> weekend.
