Double Progression Triple Minor

Double Progression Triple Minor is an English Country Dance. It was devised by George Williams in 2020. It is a proper Triple Minor dance. It is a double progression dance. The dance lasts 8 bars.

I wanted to explore the posibility of a double progression triple minor which maintains the rule of 2s + 3s swapping roles.

There are some oddities. If you have two couples already out at the top, then when you get 2 more couples, then it is the 2nd couple from the top who must start as a 1, not the 1st couple.

When you have two couples out at the bottom they must switch places, but dancing the ghosts won't really do this, they must make up their own moves.

See A Trip O'er Tweed for a possible example of a double progression triple minor in Playford.

The animation plays at 120 counts per minute normally, but the first time through the set the dance is 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.
