Technical terms, instructions, descriptions, jargon; the shorthand used to describe the different moves during dances you might meet at a dance.
It is jargon as you won't have met these terms unless you've been dancing and if you are learning they'll seem strange, arbitrary and sometimes confusing.
This list includes terms you'll meet in Webfeet's Annotated Dances. It is not a full list of all the terms you might meet, consider it an introduction and you're likely to find different dance communities have different terms for the same (or similar) moves. Look at The Round's dance elements for more information and a different perspective.
You start facing your partner and the edict is Don't Turn Round:
If you started going clockwise, continue going clockwise. If you started going anticlockwise, continue going anticlockwise.
Even when hopelessly lost and uncertain; Don't Turn Round.
