>> _:_ )

Go to the very front of the book (like the 4th page or something), and it is
explained thusly...

  _._  Stands for a strain playd once. 
  _:_  Stands for a strain playd twice. 
  _.:_ Stands for a strain playd thrice, &c. 

Basically it's a reference to the repeat structure of the music relative to the
dance steps.
