    The twizzles themselves wouldn't look different. The difference would be where they're used in the choreography in relation to the music but even then I'm not sure how much different they'd look or feel.

    Now that I think of it, twizzles aren't really suited to all types of music, IMO. As in V/M's 2010 Mahler program -- it's on my all-time hit parade but...twizzles & Mahler? Something about those 2 ideas just does not go together.

    Gotta watch that program again. Several times!

    Yup, me too---I cringe whenever a team uses a tango for a FD or a single skater uses tango for a SP or FS.

    What are some of your favorite ice dances across the decades? I really can't think of a single dance from before CoP was created where a 15+ second spin with change of foot would help the program. I don't see any programs in this past CoP decade that benefited from including such a long spin either.

    My favorite usage of a dance spin is Virtue Moir's 2011 FD (this program also has the best usage of a twizzle sequence ever) but even in that program the final spin position they do is very unnecessary - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTGdeEfZuUI&t=3m35s - the program would have had more energy if they continued on dancing after the upright position + quick turn on the ice that they do. Why did they need to change foot and go into sit spin position after that?
