The balletomanes know that an attitude is an arabesque (spiral) with a bent knee. the knee in general is higher than the foot (allthough the Russians do it the other way, and it is quite effective).
It is the basis of the classic layback spin a la Angela. Quite lovely. But how many skaters can do the 'attitude' spin without the layback? I noticed that Sarah did an outside attitude spin when completing a camel in the exhibition, but it was just for a turn and a half. Klimkin also does an attitude spin (outside) when completing a camel and it has many turns (very efffective) but low attitude.
I don't think anyone can do that spin a la Angela (inside) without the layback. btw, Angela doesn't do it either.
Am I correct? If not to whom should I look for it?
