A Trip to Bengall is an English Country Dance. It was published by Thompson in 1765 in Twenty Four Country Dances for the Year 1765. It was interpreted by George Williams in 2021. It is a proper Duple Minor dance. The minor set lasts 32 bars.
The animation plays at 120 counts per minute normally, but the first time through the set the dance will often be slowed down so people can learn the moves more readily. Men are drawn as rectangles, women as ellipses. Each couple is drawn in its own color, however the border of each dancer indicates what role they currently play so the border color may change each time through the minor set.
