Having read lots of people's opinions about different programmes this season I'm just wondering exactly what people mean by choreography and particularly difficult choreography (which seems praise worthy).
I always thought of choreography as the placement of the elements on the ice, and the use of the body throughout the routine to the music. That being the case I don't understand "difficult" in this context. Does it include what I would call transitions, or, the specific placements of turns and moves in between the elements? Is there an overlap between transitions and choreography? I much better understand the concept of difficult transitions - placing several difficult turns and moves in between the elements is certainly more difficult that simply stroking or doing cross-overs, but choreography seems harder to nail down in terms of difficulty.
Can anyone shed some light or explain a little bit for me?
