From two facing dancers (or a R-H Mini-Wave).

Without changing facing direction, walk clockwise around the other dancer a full circle to end facing that dancer.

That is, walk forward and a bit to your left to pass right-shoulders; then slide back-to-back; then back up sliding a bit to the right to pass left-shoulders; finally slide left, backing up to end in facing dancers.

Ends in Facing Dancers.


  • Always pass right-shoulders.
  • Unless a fraction is given, always ends facing the one you did the movement with.
  • Dosado is from the French 'dos a dos', meaning back-to-back.
  • Dosado To A Wave means Dosado then Step To A Wave. Same as Dosado 1 & 1/4.
