The lead's right hand is placed firmly on the follow's back at the shoulder blade with the elbow raised and the arm bent sufficiently to hold their partner close. The left hand of the follow is placed at/on the shoulder of the lead so that the arm rests comfortably, elbow to elbow, on the lead's upper arm. The left arm of the lead and the right arm of the follow are extended comfortably at shoulder height. Their shoulders remain parallel.

The pair spin combination must include a minimum of two different basic positions with two revolutions in each of these positions by both partners anywhere within the spin. To receive full value, a spin combination must include all three basic positions by both partners. 
  • Ice Dance: A dance spin which has a change of foot performed simultaneously by both partners.  
  • Synchronized Skating: The spin combination must include a minimum of two different basic positions (sit, camel, upright or any variation thereof) and only one change of foot. The change of foot and the change of position must occur at the same time by all skaters executing the spin
