How many ways are there to dance a 6 step Highland Fling?

Thanks to Lila Greco for compiling this information and making the graphic!

The Highland Fling is typically the first full dance learned in a Scottish dance class. It is the only dance performed in one spot, since it originated as a victory dance done by Scottish warriors on a targe, which is a shield that has a spike coming out of the center. While the Fling is often thought to be one of the most confining Highland dances, it is anything but!
