Flair Lesson #20: Tin Spin

I like basic tin moves because they can be really good moves to test out your crowd or your boss when you’re first starting out. This move isn’t particularly difficult so I will try not to over-explain it. We start by grabbind the tin slightly above its mid-point. If you’ve ever thrown a frisbee, the motion is very similar. Start by hinging your elbow, pushing your forearm away from you. Then flick your wrist and release your fingers on the tin, letting it spin on the balls of your hand (the opposite side of your knuckles.)

If you’re having a hard time with this, try practicing just a half-spin. Once you’re comfortable with that, try spinning the tin all the way around. Be ambidextrous – practice this move with both hands.
