The first identifying terms that a new dancer encounters are derived from the formation which begins a tip -- the Squared Set.

Note: This document describes the ways that various terms are commonly used starting with the Mainstream program, as well as some ways that certain terms are used in Advanced and Challenge dancing, but it does not cover all such usages. A more formal presentation of most of these terms can be found in the preface of the CALLERLAB document "Basic and Mainstream Definitions".
