Every Lad His Lass ~ Duple

Every Lad His Lass ~ Duple Every Lad His Lass ~ Sharp

Every Lad His Lass ~ Duple is an English Country Dance. It was published by Playford (John Young) in 1710 in The Dancing Master, Vol. the Second. It was interpreted by George Williams in 2021. It is a proper Duple Minor dance. The dance lasts 20 bars.

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.
