Just keep in mind that you'll basically be balancing your weight on 1 foot and turn the foot you have no pressure on slowly. If you fall it's because it's either biting into the ice or you're not balanced enough. If it's the case ; bend your knees and lower your center of gravity.
Thanks for the advice.
