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 /
