What's the order of events for socials at the studio you go to?  Here's ours:

7-8 PM Group lesson
8-9 PM Dancing.  Mix of music.  Generally a foxtrot mixer is played around 8:15; other than that, no particular order.
9 PM Short break, where the instructors are allowed to sit (otherwise, they are expected to be on the floor all night).  Usually, during the break, 1-2 line dance songs are played, then the owner will make a few announcements (birthdays, upcoming events, specials, etc.), and then a drawing for door prizes.  This usually takes about 10 minutes.  Sometimes there is a spotlight dance or demonstration before general dancing resumes.
9:10-10 PM Dancing.
10 PM Last dance.  Regulars usually hang around for a few minutes and help clean up.  Lots of conversation wrap-up as people gradually migrate towards the door. 
10:30 PM Turn out the lights; the party's over.

Music all night is a mix of ballroom, Latin, swing, and a bit of country.

Similar, although there's no designated break for teachers.  They take breaks as needed although, to be honest, I don't see them take a lot of breaks.

What about mixers?  Usually,there are at least two a night -- one waltz and one foxtrot.  There is such an imbalance of ladies versus gentleman that the mixers give all the ladies a chance to get  a least a couple dances, guaranteed.

Dona nobis pacem.
