The Triangle [Working As A Box] CONCEPT
allows for a call normally done from a 2 x 2 to be done from a generalized Tandem-Based Triangle.
Unless otherwise specified by the caller, the Apex dancer always acts as a Trailer
whereas the Base dancers have clear Leader-Trailer roles. This leaves one 'phantom' in
the execution of the call. The three dancers and the phantom work together to execute
the given call.
At the completion of the call, a space may be reserved for the phantom dancer (see note
Historically, the phantom's part of the call does not involve much interaction
with any real dancers.
If the call ends in a 2 x 2,
- each dancer must end on one of the original Triangle footprints.
If the call does not end in a 2 x 2,
- The phantom position is kept if the phantom ends as a center of a 1 x 4, Diamond, or Single 1/4 Tag.
- Otherwise, if the effect of removing the phantom causes all of the
real dancers to move closer to the center of the set, then the phantom is removed.

The following is a partial list of calls [C2 or below] that might be done from a Triangle:
Typically the Triangle [Working As A Box] CONCEPT is
used only from a Generalized Tandem-Based Triangle. Occasionally, however,
callers sometimes use this concept from a Wave-Based Triangle.
