It’s a one off so far, but a 2nd dance is in the diary and it will hopefully become a regular series.

Is this for a regular series, or one-off  (ONS) dances?

I know several dance series use gender-free terms:

  Jets/Rubies: Portland ME
  Lead/Follow: Hampshire College, Contradelphia [defunct?]
  Bands/Bare-arms: JP, Western MA
  Larks/ Ravens: Circle Left, South Bay

Does anyone know of other dances that are gender free, and what terms they
