Mentioned 'Random Starter' earlier in the thread. Sorry to be slow coming back with more info. Very simple dance, but eases people into the idea.

Tune we usually use, either Walter Bulwers Polka or Uncle Bernards Polka. (AABB)

Starting with the happy couple and best man/bridesmaid (or other invited couple)

A1: in 4s circle left, circle right
A2: Right hand star, Left hand star
B1: Swing opposite
B2: both couples find a new couple

One small tip, band need to watch and be ready to do an extra B if it takes a bit longer for the original couples to find new people and be ready to start again.
