Any suitable 32-bar jigs or reels. The Rory O'More Balances feel different and more lively with jigs, so starting with reels and switching up to jigs works well.

I liked Sue Rosen's Apples & Chocolate but some of my dancers found the Half-Hey transition into New Neighbours confusing so I changed the middle of the B section to make it easier.
