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.
