Single and double twizzle in a step sequence – Only a double twizzle is accepted as a "difficult turn" to achieve levels 3 and 4. The first two twizzles performed (first two turns of this type) are the two that are considered by the technical panel for the level regardless if it is a single or a double twizzle.
Example: If a double twizzle is performed, then a single twizzle, then another double twizzle, the second double twizzle cannot be considered as it is the "third" occurrence of this "type of turn".
