Tension is an orbiters best friend. By spinning the orbit, it gains momentum, which can be maintained by pulling the strings, causing the orbit to spin. Orbiters can increase the spin by cranking down like an accordion, and the tension or momentum created between your hands acts as the basis for Pivots, Isolation, and Liquid Flow.

Where You've Seen This:
Why You Need to Know It:
Tension makes orbiting unique to any other flow art. Many moves such as Pivots, Stalls, and Isolations rely on an orbiter's ability to control tension.
