Green Sleeves and Pudding Pies is an English Country Dance. It was published by John Playford in 1686 in The Dancing Master, 7th ed.. It is a proper Triple Minor dance. The dance lasts 48 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.
