A Diagonal Column | Line | Wave is a Distorted Column | Line | Wave in which the facing directions of the dancers are off by 45° relative to the Column | Line | Wave (i.e., if everybody individually turned 45° to the Right or Left, then they would be in the named formation). For example, from a Butterfly formation, there are two Diagonal Columns or two Diagonal Lines | Waves.

Normally, calls done within a Diagonal Column|Line|Wave start and end on the four footprints of the Diagonal Column|Line|Wave. Occasionally, from a Butterfly, the caller may give a call which rotates the Diagonal by 90° (such as Diagonal Wave Lockit or Diagonal Wave Spin The Top). In this case, the dancers end in the footprints of the other 1x4.
