A Pop 360 executed from the "U" dip within the "butterfly" setup. The Illusion Twist occurs when a person dips down in a U-like formation, just like in a Butterfly Twist; but instsead of wrapping across and twisting off of the base leg (like in a Butterfly Twist), you simply turn and execute a Pop 360 instead. When done correctly, it gives off the appearance of a "twisting" technique, without it actually being one.
Despite being a variation of the Butterfly Twist, the Illusion Twist is actually not a twist (a horizontal spin) at all. However, the Butterfly Kick is still a prerequisite.
