Rule #1: Everyone is entitled to have fun on the dance-floor without getting hurt! Please practise these moves before trying to lead them with a stranger. It is always best to use the more complex moves with a "partner" rather than with a "neighbour" where you only get one chance to get it right.
It doesn’t matter whether you dance Contra, Ceilidh, ECD, Square Dance, Country Dance, Folk Dance or anything else. The same techniques apply and you can use many of these variations.
I use the historical role names of Man and Lady, but anyone can dance any role.
