Set and turn is a sequence of steps used in English Country Dance quite frequently. As a general rule, it is done by a dancer who starts out facing another, and usually both do it simultaneously. A set and turn left consists of a single to the left, a single to the right, and a turn over the left shoulder (ie, anticlockwise as seen from above). A set and turn right is the same, but to the other side.

The set that is the first half of this figure is often done by itself.
