On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.


Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.


It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

1st Ballet Class in 53 years...

In other words... first ballet class EVER!  Here is what I attempted to learn tonight:

5 Positions
Demi Plie
Grand Plie
Tendu Battement
Battement Dégagé

Sorry, I forgot the rest because I came home and had a glass of wine.

  1. I love it! I just order a Bar Method dvd today because my coach recommended it as a great way to get both strength and flexibility for skating. It's supposed to be a ballet-based workout. It's also appealing that it's supposed to be easy on my not-young-anymore knees! Good luck with the ballet.
