As for spotting, if you remember the head is the last to leave and the first to come around, it can be very helpful. Look in the mirror, turn slowly around yourself. When you can no longer turn without seeing yourself, quickly switch your head to the other side, see yourself and then continue with your body. Your head must remain upright, no tilting in one direction nor the other.


It can be most helpful if your teacher could help you until you get the idea. You must see yourself at the beginning and end of each turn when remaining enface. Do not swich to the corners until you have mastered enface.
