 Couple #1, #2, #3, #4
 CALLERLAB  -  November 2009

Definition:
 

Command examples:
Couples 1 and 3 make a Right Hand Star
1 and 3 Lead Out To The Right
Couple 1 Split Couple 3, Round one to a line

Description: From a Squared Set, at the start of the tip, the couple whose back is to the caller is Couple #1. The couple to their right is Couple #2, and so on.

Dancers retain their couple number as established when they first squared up.

The figure portion of singing calls almost always causes each woman to progress to a new man. Once this has happened, she temporarily takes on the couple number and home position of that man.

Comments: The phrases "Couples 1 And 3" and "1 And 3" mean the same thing as "Heads". Modern choreography has moved away from using couple numbers to identify dancers. See Heads / Sides (above).
