A move in which skaters demonstrate flexibility and a fluid line by extending the non-skating leg behind them into the air during a long glide.
Any move on which the skater glides along the ice on one skate, with the non-skating leg in the air to the rear.
a glide on long edges in arabesque position in which the free leg is held equal to or higher than hip levels
A movement in which the skater glides on one foot with the upper body bent forwards at the waist with the back arched, and the free leg is held extended at a level above the ice surface higher than the hip of the free leg.
A spiral is an element in figure skating where the skater glides on one foot while raising the free leg above hip level. Many skaters try to lift the leg as high as possible, but more important than the height of the free leg is that it be fully stretched and that the tension of the position be maintained in the upper body as well. In addition, figure skating judges look for the depth, stability, and control of the skating edge.
