    I know he didn't INVENT it, but Shawn Sawyer's cantilever became a staple of a lot of his programs.

    Absolutely.

    Considering how difficult it is to come up with never before seen moves, I always felt that they never got enough credit for creating that, and if they were an American or Canadian team, that move would already have it's own name and tumblrs dedicated to endless gifs of them performing it.

    Shawn Sawyer's I spin - no one else does this (probably because no one else can, LOL)

    Michael Weiss' "freedom blades" spread eagle - yeah, it's cheesy, but I like it anyway
    "I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence

    Ice dancers have many signature moves because they have to always come up with original moves.

    Just a tip since not everyone knows - if you want to link to a specific moment on youtube, pause the video at that moment, then right click on the video and select "copy video URL at current time."

    It was mentioned, but here is Surya Bonaly's backflip into 3sal

    This is a description of a spin that the webmaster dubbed The Bonaly Spin and here is a vid.

    Phillipe Candeloro had many signature moves (besides taking his shirt off and an awesome 3axel )
    Bunny hops (with Surya!)
    Bonus: sbs backflip
    And the knee spin (later deemed illegal in competition)

    In addition to the cantilever, Ilia Klimkin had his camel spin in both directions into a 3sal!

    Elene Gedevansihvili - spiral with change of hand

    Sandhu
    - butt spin

    I always liked this lift entrance and dismount of Valova & Vassiliev - very gentle and elegant

    Surprised no one mentioned A&P's reverse lift - this one is my favorite and I love this one also

    Savchenko & Szolkowy - dance lift into 3twist - soooo difficult!

    Selezneva & Makarov
    Throw 2axel into sbs 2axel
    Holding hands into 2axels
    Hydroblading

    Plushy
    Biellman spin and spiral
    3axel-1/2loop-3flip - first (only?) man to do this

    Slute - double biellman

    Virtue & Moir - the "goose"
    Version #1
    Version #2 (jump dismount - changed because it might have been illegal, but it's my favorite)
    Version #3

    Kokhlova & Novitsky
    Pornographic handbag into biellman
    An especially voidy variation on one of her positions

    Regarding Irena's double Biellman, from that description I just see her with both legs up behind her at the same time gliding around on her...
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Yes you're right.
    Do you remember this move when they did a variation of it ? I'm not sure which FD maybe Carnival 06 where they did the move but slightly turned it .Isabelle said it was very difficult

    Loved K/N handbag lift too !

    Irina Slutskaya's "lost year" SP highlights so many of her signature moves -- running threes into a 3Lo, her famous combination spin.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5O3E36QynNo

    There's also some wonderful jump variations: the 3F combination from turns and a 2A with the arm above her head.

    This is my favorite among many excellent Irina short programs and would score well under COP too.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    One of my all time favorites is Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner's spread eagle into change edge pair Ina Bauer.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpcI4...eature=related

    I posted the whole program, because it's so beautiful, but the move I was referring to happens at the about the 4:40 point.

    Yes, in the 06 FD they do it on a curve instead of a straight line.

    Oksana Baiul's doughnut spin, even though others tried to do it too, Shazuka for example.

    Adam's both arms up lutz.
    One of the Mexican girls (name escapes me at the moment) has a really cool sit spin. (I'll see if I can find it)

    Found it! Ana Cecilia Cantu

    Has anyone mentioned Blumberg and Seibert's signature moves? The first one, where she is holding his leg and is low and parallel to the ice, they performed in many of their programs. The second one, the "donut lift" was only in Scheherezade, I think.

    step over move


    Donut lift

    Here's an earlier version of the step over move
