Definition: Twizzles are multirotational one-foot turns done in figure skating. Twizzles can be done in a row. It is very common to see a skater doing a twizzle in one direction and then to follow the first twizzle with a twizzle in the other direction. Usually skaters turn for at least four revolutions on a twizzle.
Sometimes viewers of figure skating get confused between twizzles and spins. Twizzles travel and move down the ice. Spins stay in one place.
Twizzles can be done both forward or backward. Twizzles can be done on both inside and outside edges. Twizzles also can be done in any direction.
