Hint 1

This is a pretty difficult logic puzzle - be prepared to take a lot of notes on scrap paper.

A big hint on how to get started... Hint 2

The clues provided all give some info about consecutive quadrilles. However, they don't tell you which quadrilles they are. For instance, in clue #2, it mentions that the Oceanid dances, the Limnad dances, Greco dances, and Faunis dances. You know these are consecutive dances, but you don't know if the quadrilles described are the 1st - 4th, the 2nd - 5th, the 3rd - 6th, or the 4th - 7th. A lot of the meat of this puzzle comes from comparing different clues to figure out which quadrilles each clue is talking about.

Hint 3

For the following, to avoid writing all of the names, UPPERCASE stands for satyr, lowercase stands for nymph, italics stands for races, and bold stands for dances.
If we start comparing some of the clues (and writing them in short hand, we can figure out which quadrilles those clues refer to. In clue 3, we see these four dances:
E
A
G
F
In clue 4, we see these four dances:
t / m
A / D
Bm
G / t
We know from the clues that each satyr dances twice, but cannot dance consecutively, so we know that Clue 3 dance 2 (with satyr A) isn't the same as Clue 4 dance 2 (with satyr A), because then satyr G will dance consecutive dances. We also know that Clue 3 dance 3 (with satyr G) isn't the same as Clue 4 dance 4, because then satyr A would have consecutive dances. That tells you that you have to fit clue 3 and clue 4 like puzzle pieces over the 7 quadrilles so that satyrs A and G aren't next to their pairs.

Hint 4

The next section contains the answer. Do not reveal unless you want to be spoiled
