Dancing hint: Dancers leading the exchange should raise a hand to identify themselves so that the other dancers in their Diamond can follow them.

Exchange The Box [C3A]: From a 2 x 4. Do a total of four Split Circulates, except that when you become the In-facing Center do your next Circulate to your diagonal opposite position (crossing over into the other Box). Exchange The Box can be fractionalized into fourths.

Exchange The Triangle [C3A] (Dave Hodson 1979): From Twin Triangles. Do a total of three Triangle Circulates except that when 1) you become the Apex dancer (for Apex-to-Apex Triangles), or 2) you become the In-facing Base dancer (for Base-to-Base Triangles); do your next Circulate to the other Triangle. (From Apex-to-Apex Triangles, the Circulate is an Interlocked Triangle Circulate; from Base-to-Base Triangles, the Circulate is to the diagonal opposite position.) Exchange The Triangle can be fractionalized into thirds.
