How to Do a backspin maneuver in figure skating
In this tutorial, Gina teaches us how to do a backspin in figure skating. This is when you are spinning on the opposite foot but in another direction. The most difficult thing is to find the right balance in your body. It takes a lot of practice to get used to this. You can use an exercise of doing backwards cross overs to get used to finding the spot that will be perfect for your body to balance. Start by doing an open position, the go into a rotating position. If you are in the right position, you should start turning easily and then you will be able to practice your backspin. Be prepared to fall and practice a lot to get this move down!
