Corner Position In Square SetIn any Figure requiring three adjacent Couples in a Longwise set, Corner position (often shortened to Corner when there is no ambiguity) provides an immensely valuable shorthand term to teachers of Scottish Country Dancing.
This concept has also been applied to the 4 couple square set (see the following diagram). At the Start, with each Man on his Partner's left, the Man's First corner is the Lady on his left and the Lady's is the Man on her right. The Man's Second corner is the Partner of his Partner's First corner, i.e., the Lady three Places to his right; similarly the Lady's Second corner is the Man three Places to her left.
