|Once Removed Concept [C2]|
(Norm Poisson 1976)
Divide the overall formation along its long axis into planes of dancers (e.g., a 1 x 8 has eight planes; a 2 x 4 has four planes). Dancers occupying every other plane work together to do the given call. At the end of the given call, the dancers in one set of planes must end within their original set of planes.
At C2, Once Removed is primarily limited to doing simple (i.e., non-shape-changing) calls from a 2 x 4 or a 1 x 4. From a 2 x 2, the dancers work in a manner similar to working in (Interlocked) Blocks [C1].
See Block FORMATION [C1] for a list of non-shape-changing calls from a 2 x 2.

In the first example, As Couples precedes Once Removed, hence you must first establish who is Couples with whom ( and act as one dancer; and act as one dancer, etc.) and then work Once Removed (hence is working with ).
In the second example, Once Removed precedes As Couples, hence you must first establish who is in your Once Removed setup ( , , , and are in one setup; , , , and are in the other) and then work As Couples (hence is a Couple working with Couple .).
