Hi Amy, No, no, that’s not what See-Saw means!
You can see a See-Saw being performed just after 31 seconds into: https://archive.org/details/square_dancing No, just kidding. 😊 Dosido and Seesaw mean lots of different things (I have a contra dance with three completely different “Dosidos”!). Your use of See-Saw is the one most contra dancers know, though Modern Western Square Dancing has redefined it as a Left Shoulder Gypsy! You’re in charge! Call it what you like!

Hello again all -- it has been brought (gently) to my attention that I have been laboring under a delusion, that I have strayed from the path... "Do-SI-do, do-SA-do" does not mean back-to-back starting right shoulder, then back to back starting left shoulder. Deep down I know this, I swear, I know they're the same term with different accents, but SOMEwhere.SOMEhow I started using the phrase/habit with a particular wedding dance and it stuck. No idea why. Total brain fart. Thank you, Tony Parkes, for leading me back into the light of truth. I'm going to go recite the moves of Moneymusk three times and light a candle to Ralph Page and hope that's enough penance. Please replace the B1 part of my silly Star Wars trash compactor dance with "Do Si Do, See-Saw" Yikes, Amy
