Triangle [Working As A Box] Concept [C2]
(author unknown)
 C2:

 Language:  or

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. EN: 10

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 below). EN: 20

• If the call ends in a 2 x 2, EN: 50

1. The phantom position is kept if the phantom ends as a center of a 1 x 4, Diamond, or Single 1/4 Tag. EN: 80
2. 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. EN: 90
