Usual Square Dancing Structure To understand this guide, let me show you the basic structure of square dance first.

Begin with Couple 1 facing away from the music and going counter- clockwise until getting to Couple 4. Couples 1 and 3 are known as the head couples, while Couples 2 and 4 are the side couples. Each dance begins and ends each sequence with â&#x20AC;&#x153;sets-in-orderâ&#x20AC;? in the square formation.
