In dances of this type, how do you think of the triangle? Are the couples
standing on the corners, or are they in the middle of the sides -
I must confess to being inconsistent, in that I think of them on the
corners,
whereas in a square set the couples are in the middle of the sides!
(Our friends seem to be fairly evenly split in their viewpoints)

I'm not convinced that it makes a good demonstration dance, despite having
put it on many times - it's difficult to keep the standing couples at an
angle, and
if you do then the asymmetry looks odd when they set.
