I am not sure if there's a word for it, but it would make a lot of sense if there was, sometimes in the "acrobatic arts" people do this, so there might be a specific terminology for it, I suspect there's a word for it, but I might be wrong.

For example:

The cheerleaders ____ to form a big triangle in front of the cheering crowd.

  • I'm not sure that there's a term specifically for its use in things like acrobatics, but in your example sentence, combined would fit just fine. I'm not putting this as an answer because I'm not convinced it's what you're looking for. – SamBC Apr 6 at 13:34
  • @frbsfok Are you asking in regard only to acrobatics or in regard to any situation where bodies are joined? – Don B. Apr 6 at 17:14
  • A word that can be used in any context preferably. – frbsfok Apr 6 at 17:19

    I'd use assemble. – Anton Sherwood Apr 6 at 23:51

One word that can be used is gathered:

The cheerleaders gathered to form a big triangle in front of the cheering crowd.

As a verb, gathered means:

gather (v.)

  • To congregate, or assemble.
    People gathered round as he began to tell his story.

  • To collect from different places; assemble.

  • To cause to come together; convene.
