In a longwise set dancers are positioned standing opposite to and facing their partner. Couples are numbered from the top of the set i.e. 1st couple are at the top of the set, 2nd couple are next etc. The most usual longwise set is a 4 couple set (see diagram) although 3 couple or 5 couple sets are also seen in many dances.
