Push onto the LFO – coach said I had more speed and coverage. So:
- Push (bend the L knee) on RFO
- Pull in tight for longer – it helped me to speed the rotation and it looked cleaner as a jump
SIT SPIN (and all spins, really)
Do a tighter half-circle on the LFO. So if I’m facing north as I step, try to wait until I’m facing south before allowing the spin to happen.
Also helped on some camel spins.
BACK SIT SPIN HOP
During the back spin, come up on the R knee and then hop.
After the hop, stay up for a fraction of a second before descending back into the back sit position.
BACK SIT SPIN
My exit position was a bit ungainly. Coach L suggested coming up on the R knee while keeping the L foot in the sit position and then taking the free leg back.
Also need to think about keeping the L leg straight rather than breaking at the knee.
