Notes:
• 'Position' in terms of this definition refers to a spot that could be occupied by a dancer. Within a 2 x 4 there are eight positions. A Squared Set, Butterfly, or "O" is a 16-Matrix (4 x 4) formation, and one position refers to an adjacent spot within that rectangular grid. EN: 20
• 'Position' in terms of this definition refers to a spot that could be On Loop 1, run so that you have completely gone past one position. This will put you a total of 2 positions from your original spot. EN: 30
• Loop is a convenient way for the caller to get into and out of Offset setups. EN: 40
• The direction can be In, Out, Right, or Left. In and Out are relative to the Center of the Set. EN: 50
