Petit Vriens is a fairly simple dance from Domenico. It is for three people  it can be done with a man and two ladies or two men and one lady. The music has been notated by Monica Cellio in fairly quick 6/8 time, which means that one Piva takes one bar of the music, while a doppio takes two bars (or one bar of 6/4).
