    We may dance them in 4-cp sets, but the vast majority of our dances  
    are 3-cp dances.
    The choice is enormous. Some may require an extra cast-off, if you  
    want each of thee three to dance as top couple.
    
    Whether they are fun to watch is a different matter.

    We once faced the same "problem" - we did a demo for a wedding in
    Dortmund with only 3 couples dancing. We did:
    
    Barop Wedding (J32)
    Wind on Loch Fyne (Dunedin I 3S32)
    Swiss Lassie (RSCDS 39  R 32) as a 3cpl dance.
    
    Barop Wedding is a Jig I devised specifically for the occasion, i.e.
    with the spectators in mind:
    
    1-8      1 c turn right hand, cast off one place, set advancing and
    passing left Sh ready for:
    9-12     Double Triangles, finishing ready for:
    13-24   3 c Allemande
    25-32   1 and 2 c dance Rights and Lefts.
    
    Fairly straightforward, but nice to watch. Not too exhausting either
    despite all the activity, as it's only danced three times through.
    
    Hope this helps.

    No real idea if suitable for a demo, but I quite like my own dance 
    Cambusnethan http://www.scottap.com/scd/dances/cambusnethan.html
    
    I'm told it's fun to dance.

    couples)
