2 Couple Repeat In 2 Couple Set
While the 2 Couple repeat in 4 couple set
is quite a common Longwise set
format, the 2 Couple repeat in 2 couple set
is particularly rare as a formal Type of set
; Marengo Blue
and Merry Go Round (McLaughlin)
are examples which have Progression
and the standard Repeat
structure (i.e., Finishing
in the order 21). However, it is well-known that 2 Couple repeat in 4 couple set
dances can be performed in 5 Couple sets
, 3 Couple sets
and even 2 Couple sets
whenever the number of Dancers
available so dictates and so every 2 Couple repeat in 4 couple set
dance could be performed as a 2 Couple repeat in 2 couple set
There is a risk of confusion with the 2 Couple Square set format. The principal distinction is the Positioning of the Dancers around The set at the Start: in the 2 Couple repeat in 2 couple set format, the Men are adjacent, Facing their Partners Across the set; in the 2 Couple Square set format, Men and Ladies alternate around The set.
Note also that there are many 2 Couple dances in the Progressive Round the room format which are categorized as such, rather than here.
