Trito minuto (Ballarino)

Full name of step in source: 
Rule 42. Trito minuto. p14.

The Trito minuto is done beginning with the feet a little uneven, now to the left, now to the right, as it happens in the mutanze. Then, beginning with whichever foot is in front, you do three very fast, very small Balzetti, per fianco, with the feet straight and a little uneven. When this is done to the left flank the left foot ought to be put a little in front of the right, but the toes should go in a straight line; and if it is done to the right, it is done per contrario, that is, putting the right foot a little in front of the left. And because of this movement of the feet, minced up very small [minutamente triti], the action is called Trito minuto.
