That is the hardest thing about skating pairs so far. Trying to get the timing down - especially for spins. I always know if I got "about" 4-5-6 revolutions in a spin, but never precisely. In pairs you have to be more aware of each revolution and how fast or slow you are going in comparison to your partner. Also .. exiting a spin facing a certain direction has never been my forté. We'll get it eventually.
Learned a pair spin today. Very simple, side by side, yet a pair spin. Also learned how to enter a pair spin of any kind from opposite sides of a circle and the basic throw loop entry. Excited about learning more things in the days to come.
Next week we hope to have a lesson on Thursday !!
