Paul Wylie's change of edge spread eagles
I love Sotnikova's sideway spin.
Love what others have put down. I'd add Yuna's Ina Bauer into Double Axel and Matt Savoie's difficult and different entries before jumps.
In a video someone posted of Adelina improvising at a gala, she did a gorgeous Charlotte spiral. Full extension, total 180...it was lovely. I'd like to see her add those in next season.
Most of the time Charlotte stops aren't considered true spirals since they're on a flat (unless it's a forward charlotte, often done as a transition from an arabesque). But when the spiral sequence was taken out and then put into the choreography sequence, maybe the rules became more relaxed which is why Ashley was able to do a charlotte on a flat????
I just checked the rules and it says the spiral HAS to be done on an edge. So how did Ashley get credit for her Charlotte?
Here is the technical aid verbiage. I don't see where it says the spiral must be on an edge, only that the skater must stop in the spiral position of choice (must not be a kick):
The choreographic sequence consist of any kind of movements such as steps, turns, spirals, arabesques, spread eagles, Ina Bauers, hydroblading, transitional (unlisted) jumps, spinning movements etc. A Choreographic Sequence for Ladies must include at least one spiral (not a kick) of any length. The Sequence commences with the first move and is concluded with the last move of the skater. The pattern is not restricted, but the Sequence must fully utilize the ice surface. If this requirement is not fulfilled, the Sequence will have no value. The Choreographic Sequence is included in Free Skating and has to be performed after the Step Sequence. The Choreographic Sequence has a base value and will be evaluated by the judges in GOE only.

http://www.usfsa.org/content/First%20Aid%20Singles.pdfA Spiral is a position with one blade on the ice and the free leg (including knee and
foot) higher than the hip
level. Spiral positions must be on edge.
