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.

Learning The Canasta Tango

After a few 30 minute ice dance group classes and a little practice on my own with Mike we took a stab at the Canasta Tango.  First shadowing, then just holding hands and finally in what I just learned to be "Reverse Kilian" position.  Man on the right, lady on the left.  Sheesh.  I thought freestyle and moves in the field had a lot of rules.

This was a 6:00 a.m. session.
