About
The Preziosa is a fairly new submission into the code of points, bringing an entire turn shape that was not previously used (but dance things, so it’s OK), the scorpion. Some dance-y people are not thrilled with the position here and will elect not to call this a scorpion, but whatever.

Despite its D value, the scorpion as a turning shape hasn’t really caught on at all post-Preziosa.

Value
D
