The city is located on the Dance River 'pronounced "Daunce"', and was first settled by French settlers in the 1810s. The French colony failed and was absorbed into the British settlement by the 1830s. The name of the city is derived from the Dance river, though the city is pronounced "Double Dance" and not "Double Daunce". Many pronounce the city's name as "Doo-ble Dance"; this is not the 'official' pronunciation, however.
The Doubledance City Council is the legislative authority, while the local government is headed by a directly-elected Mayor. Like all major Georgeland cities, Doubledance has a mayor-council system of government. The City of Doubledance incorporates eight'boroughs', many of which, like Cheltenham and Canterbury, were formerly cities in their own right.
