Standing Couples/Dancers

In Scottish Country Dancing Standing couples/dancers are those who are stationary at any time. They fall into two categories:
those who are part of the Full set but not of the Active set (only in a Longwise set with the 3 Couple repeat in 4 couple set or the 2 Couple repeat in 4 couple set format or in a Round the room set for which there is an odd group of Couples or threesomes); and
those who are part of any Active set of whatever format but are not involved in the current Figure and so are briefly stationary.
