3-count Bruno's nightmare

Jugglers needed (base version): 3 advanced

The idea is similar to regular Bruno's nightmare, except now the feeder is in 3-count.  It's slower, and there is one less pass to make when changing places.

In the regular version, the change in positions takes three passes (from the mover's point of view; for the feeder it's 12):
- the first from the starting point (facing the current feeder)
- the second while crossing through the middle of the other two jugglers
- the third beside the feeder (which is also his last pass as feeder)

In the 3-count version, the last pass is omitted.  More specifically, after the pass is made from the middle (B in fig. 3), the moving juggler should continue moving to the other side while turning around (fig. 4), preparing to make his pass to the next feeder 6 counts later (fig. 5).

Rhythms:
Three-count (waltz) and 6-count (one person passing with the right hand, the other with the left).  To recap, the table below illustrates a full cycle (corresponding with the diagrams above).
