Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary

Own Side (Line)

Your Own side (line) in a Longwise set is the Men's Side for the Man and the Ladies' Side for the Lady.

When Side line is used rather than Side, the exact line of the initial Standing places applies.

For example, here are some Scottish Country Dances in which the term, Own side (line), is used in either the MiniCrib or the MaxiCrib Dance instructions or both -
Dance With Your Soul
Glen Falloch (Attwood)
My Big Kilmarnock Bunnet
Push About The Jorum
Soldier's Joy
Spirit Of The Dance
Tapsalteerie (Turner/Fogg)
Waratah Weaver
Within A Mile O' Edinburgh Toon
