In eighteenth-century American Colonial dance (and, by implication, English dance of the time as well), the term "rigadoon" referred not to a couple dance but to a step that would be done as part of a country dance. It was a "footing" step, a step that would be done in place facing partner. It is now believed to have been done with a syncopated rhythm.
