English Country Dance was the world’s longest-running dance craze.  They were immensely popular from 1630 to 1830, as seen in Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility (the Jane Austen novels, and the movies based on them).  All are invited – no partner or previous experience needed.  There is no lesson, and figures are taught as needed.  Easier dances at the beginning of the evening lead up to more elegant and graceful dances by the end of the evening.
