Soldiers dance (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lancers

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'soldiers'' is the definition.
(lancer is a kind of soldier)

I cannot understand how the rest of the clue works.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for lancers that I've seen before include "Quadrille for eight/sixteen pairs" , "Soldiers with spears on horseback" , "Old regiment; dance" , "Cavalry soldiers; dance" , "Cavalrymen - dance" .)
