I don't figure skate, but I have been doing ballet for over 10 years. In ballet, I do pirouettes (sort of like spins) and toure jetes (like a half jump..) better when i do them in a clockwise direction. My friend who is a figure skater taught me a sort of simple spin which I do clockwise. However, whenever I'm watching figure skating, it almost is hard to watch and sort of comfusing when I see someone like Ashley Wagner skate because she jumps and spins clockwise. Maybe that might be just because I'm used to seeing skaters go counterclockwise.
If I started figure skating, would I rotate clockwise or counterclockwise?
Also, is it possible to have a figure skater jump counterclockwise, but spin clockwise?10 AnswersIce Skating1 decade ago
I've heard that it's 24 or 25. I'm not quite sure because I did an online search and some articles again said 24 and others said 25. If it is 25, would it be 25 time zones because the international date line splits a time zone in half?6 AnswersGeography1 decade ago
