      not sure if i can come up with 12, but:

      hole in the wall
      sellinger's round
      gathering peascods
      black nag
      single bransle
      double bransle
      burgundian bransle
      horse's bransle
      maltese bransle
      belle qui pavanne
      earl of salisbury's pavanne

      yes, i know that the earl of salisbury is modern and hole in the wall is
      very late.
