Notes:
  • Reshape The Triangle feels a lot like a Split Counter Rotate 1/4 working to Triangle footprints. In practice, you can dance Reshape as Triangle Counter Rotate 1/4 to footprints, and one of the dancers Roll in order to form a Triangle of the other type. From a Wave-Based Triangle, Reshape feels like Triangle Counter Rotate 1/4, original Apex dancer Roll. From a Tandem-Based Triangle, Reshape feels like Triangle Counter Rotate 1/4, new Apex dancer Roll.
  • If you start in a Tandem-Based Triangle, you must end in a Wave-Based Triangle and vice-versa.
  • From normal (not Facing or Funny) Triangles, the facing direction of the Apex position does not change.
  • Maintain the handedness of the Triangle. If you start in a R-H Triangle you must end in a R-H Triangle.
