A young German skater, Charlotte Oelschlagel was the first performer to star in a Broadway ice show (1915) and the first skater to star in a motion picture ("The Frozen Warning", 1916). She also invented the "Death spiral" and was a celebrity who used only her first name.
The charlotte, pronounced 'shar-LOT', also known as the candle stick, is a figure skating spiral move. The skater bends forward and glides on one leg with the other one lifted into the air. The difference between a charlotte and a regular spiral is the position of the upper body; during a typical spiral, the skater's torso is upright, but during the charlotte, the skater's torso is as close to the grounded foot as possible.
