Basic Movements of Square Dancing
File: Basic Movements of Square Dancing.pdf
This early handbook from Sets in Order provides detailed instructions for 20 basic figures, "the foundation movements for most square dancing." As such, it offers an overview of what was considered essential in the early years of MWSD.
Many figures contain subdivisions; for example, Figure 16 is Arch and Under:
b. Inside Out - Outside In
c. Ends Turn In
d. Ends Turn out
e. Right Hand Over - Left Hand Under
f. Right End Over - Left End Under
Ten more figures are presented "for those who are able to dance with the greatest frequency."
