[EDITED TO ADD] Just want to add some transparency that I'm not affiliated
with LCFD nor have I yet been to one of their dance (though I hope to at
some point). I found their site and this link when I was doing some
research a couple of years ago around setting up a gender-free dance in MI.
The Lavender Country and Folk Dancers (LCFD) use some positional references
in their gender-free English Country Dances. Might want to check it out:
Looking forward to hearing more about this as others respond.
