Are these two words interchangeable?
Can I always use one or the other without any difference in meaning?
I suppose that shall is very formal?

I shall help her .

Let's dance shan't we!
We should dance.

Try to give a short rephrasing for each pair of examples to find out whether shall and should are interchangeable .
