Well, so much won't go wrong ...
Usually, people just need a reminder on a cribsheet and not a proper
description, but this has been discussed before.
Just to test with a recently devised Dance:

CANADIAN CORN RIGGS (2 couple dance)
1-8: 1C & 2C: Cast behind lines and back (1C lead)
9-16: Double figure of 8
17-24: 1C & 2C: Down the middle and up (1C lead)
25-32: Poussette

How many misunderstandings are you able to construct here, Anselm?

PS: The original tune for the above dance is Corn Riggs
