A general directional term directed ordinarily to couples, but also can apply to individual dancers in certain circumstances (Curlicue, Men Veer Left, for example). Dancers will walk forward on a diagonal in the direction indicated to make a regular or a two-faced line with another couple. NOTE: two couples may be actively veering toward each other (after a Dive Thru they can both Veer Left or Right to a two-faced line in the middle); or one couple may be inactive and be joined by the veering couple (the inactive couple may be facing the veering couple or have their backs to them). BACKGROUND NOTE: Before the term "Veer" was adopted into Mainstream terminology, some other terms were used to describe this same movement.
