My favorite spin!
My favorite spin is a sit spin. I’m able to get nice and low and have built up the flexibility to do many variations (other than a broken leg, which I still can’t do very well).
For the past few seasons, I’ve had a level 3 sit spin in my program. There have been a few instances where my illusion entry has not been clear enough (so that the level dropped to a Level 2 spin). However, this is still my favorite spin.
My coach and I designed this as a Level 4 spin:
- Illusion entry (Level 1)
- Sit to the front / cannonball position (Level 2)
- Sit to the back / back tuck position (Level 3)
- Change to back sit position (Level 4 – this is an adult-only feature, but I am capped at Level 3 spins at the Adult Gold level)
Knowing that the illusion entry would be eliminated next season, I should hopefully still get a level 3 called for this spin. I’ll likely keep the difficult entry since it gives me a ton of speed – and hopefully positive grades of execution.
What’s your favorite spin?
Wow! That was so graceful!!! Impressive!
Thanks, Christy! This spin is super fun!
Love that tight sit position! And nice speed too!
Yay – thanks, Jo! I hope that you are doing well!
