Twosome Concept

A Twosome consists of two dancers working as a unit and obeying the following set of rules:

  1. Throughout the given call, dancers retain their geographical orientation in the square with respect to the other dancer in their Twosome unit. This means that a dancer who started on the north side of their Twosome unit must always remain on the north side throughout the entire call.
  2. The two dancers in the Twosome unit are working as if they are one dancer. Therefore, as with concepts such as Tandem, As Couples, or Solid, never allow any other dancers to come between or break up the Twosome unit. The dancers within the Twosome unit must always be facing the same direction.

The caller will usually designate who is to work as a Twosome by saying Couples Twosome, Tandem Twosome, or Siamese Twosome. If it is unambiguous as to which dancers are paired, the caller may simply say Twosome.
