Michelle Ford:

Timing Corrections
During dance programs I buzz on the strong beat of one to reinforce the correct music timing with the skater.

Spin Corrections
During spins I buzz the skater after the correct rotation count so the skater can change position or come out of a spin.

Corrections for Mohawks and Three Turns
Prior to practicing these turns, I inform the student that when I buzz them a change in direction is to occur. I use this method because I often have trouble with students turning too soon, therefore, performing the turn incorrectly.

General Corrections
Many other issues come up during a normal lesson. I use the Silent Coach, in addition to the lesson to correct some of the following issues: bending their knees, dropping their head, having bad posture, and toe pushing.
