Freebase

  1. Do-si-do

    Do-si-do, dosado, or dos-à-dos is a basic dance step in such dances as square dance, contra dance, polka, various historical dances, and some reels. The term is a corruption of the original French term dos-à-dos for the dance move, which means "back to back", as opposed to "vis-à-vis" which means "face to face". It is probably the most well-known call in square dancing aside from, perhaps, "Promenade".
