Triangle Formation  Identification  [C1] (Lee Kopman) 

 view (admin) 
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):

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.
TandemBased Triangle Circulate:

WaveBased Triangle Circulate:

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.

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.
Inside Triangles  
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,
= Boy and= Girl.
anyoneBased Triangle IDENTIFICATION:

"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.
