In Alberta, at least three other couples forms have been in practice: 1) a straight line form where couples jigged forwards in a straight line while holding hands, turned back (and changed hands) towards their starting place, and at the change they would turn to face each other for the fancy stepping; 2) another circular form where the couples instead of facing each other and stepping in place during the change would continue around the circle during their fancy stepping; and 3) an "S-shaped" form where couples would turn in different directions and then loop around so that they would jig back towards their partner, stopping in place at the change while facing each other (see Quick 2008 for more details on these variations by region in Alberta).
When jigged up and down, the presentation is flat, rather than the jig dipping tail-first and coming back up head-first.
