    | If the number of couples reach 7 they have no chance.
    
    You should realize that  you're  just  laboriously  re-inventing  the
    contra-dance pattern that is SCD's ancestor.  The solution here would
    be obvious to any contra dancer: Ask the musicians to play 14 rounds.
    Or  do  as  us  usual  at contra dances: The musicians play until the
    dance leader signals the last round.
