Dos a Dos
Dos a Dos (uncountable)
- A move in square dancing in which two dancers face each other, then step forward and left until they have right shoulders adjacent, then move to a position where they are back to back, then move to have left shoulders adjacent, then return to facing each other.
Square dancing is called in English everywhere except in parts of French Canada. This square dance move is one of the oldest, and as a term which came over from another language, over the years it has been spelled many ways in English, including Dos a Dos, Dosado, Do-Sa-Do, Dosido, and Do-Si-Do. Note that none of these is quite the same as the original French phrase.
