Triangle FORMATION [C1]:
A Triangle is a 3dancer formation consisting of 2 Base dancers and an Apex dancer.
In a TandemBased Triangle the Base dancers form a Generalized Tandem;
in a WaveBased Triangle, the Base dancers form a Generalized Couple.

= Apex dancer,
and = Base dancers. 
Triangle IDENTIFICATION (from selected setups):
 
 
 Galaxy   Hourglass   1/4 Diamond setup 

Note: The Base dancers need not be adjacent. E.g., from the Hourglass
formation shown above, the Base dancers of the WaveBased Triangle are far
apart.
Triangle Circulate [C1]:
From a Triangle.
Move forward to the next position within the Triangle, turning as necessary
to take the original facing direction (or original opposite facing direction,
if it is a facing Triangle Circulate) of the dancer who was originally there.

WaveBased Triangle Circulate:
 
 before Triangle Circulate   after


Note: As with a Box Circulate or Diamond Circulate, when doing a Triangle
Circulate, maintain the handedness of the formation
(i.e., keep the same shoulder toward the Center of the Triangle).
Inpoint  Outpoint Triangle IDENTIFICATION [C1]:
From Twin Diamonds:
the In  OutFacing Point is the Apex of a Triangle.
The other Point of the same Diamond must be facing the opposite direction.
 
 Inpoint Triangles   Outpoint Triangles 

Inside Triangle IDENTIFICATION [C1]:
Ignoring the outside two dancers, there is a Triangle on each side.
Outside Triangle IDENTIFICATION [C1]:
Ignoring the Very Centers, there is a Triangle on each side.

Outside Triangles

In  OutCenter Triangle IDENTIFICATION [C1V]:
From PointtoPoint Diamonds.
The In  OutFacing Center is the Apex of a Triangle.
This identification is rarely used.

anyonePoint Triangle IDENTIFICATION [C1V]:
From Twin Diamonds.
This identification can be used when both points of the Diamond are facing the same
direction.

anyoneBased Triangles IDENTIFICATION [C1V]:
From setups such as C1 Phantoms where there are several possible Triangles.
The anyone dancers are the Base dancers of a Triangle.
In the following diagrams,

"L" FORMATION [C4]:
An "L" is a 3dancer formation that can be obtained from a 2 x 2 after
removing any one of the dancers.
