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!

Dramatic Program 99% Finished

Skated yesterday on 2/3 ice - video coverage not worth the trouble to upload.

Today I had a full hour with my choreographer - We ironed out most of the program and got the timing down, made a few little changes and have only left to decide on an ending.  We have a few possibilities .. all depending on my ability to execute it properly.   This program should be easy.  There are only 2 spins and 1 waltz jump in it.  It's all the edges, turns and arm positions that I find difficult.
