    Re: Two chords - a question (as to definition)

    Eike,
    
    There are many four-couple dances which begin (each round) with the couples 
    three and four on the opposite side.  It has been traditional (but nowadays 
    increasingly questioned) to begin with everyone in a normal four-couple longwise 
    set and for the dance's music to begin with two chords, the first for the 
    usual bows and curtseys, the second for the lower two couples to change sides 
    prior to the actual outset of dancing.
    
    Likewise regards from Southern California,
    Robb
