is one of the Supporting Dancers
in a Repeat
of a dance from the perception of the Dancing man
. See the section, Corner position
, for precise details.
Although the term, Corner, which refers to an individual dancer, is used more commonly, the term Corner position, which refers to a Place, is much more precise in the description of a dance. A good teacher will only use the unqualified term, Corner, while that dancer is still in her/his appropriate Corner position; when the dancer is elsewhere, Corner is acceptable only if qualified by the location as for example for bars 21-24 of the Scottish Country Dance Mairi's Wedding:
"1st Couple dance Half diagonal reels of four Giving right shoulders to First corners (in Partners' First corner positions)".
For example, here are some Scottish Country Dances in which the term, Corner
, is used in either the MiniCrib or the MaxiCrib Dance instructions
or both -
Floating On Air
Lantern Of The North
Our Highland Queen
Tappie Tourie (Priddey)
