Some new dancers dance Dosado with their arms crossed in front of them. While this indicates that
the dancer has been exposed to square dancing in the past, it is not the recommended styling today.

for "Dosado Your Partner".
The Ocean Wave Rule applies to this call. The ending formation remains Facing Dancers.
