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.

Dancin' Fridays

I think we have a "passing" Rhythm Blues for my upcoming test.  It's not perfect by any means, but unless I totally forget the steps - I am feeling confident about it.

The next dance - the first of the Pre-Bronze dances is the Swing Dance.  It's not that hard on paper..
But on the ice.. Especially at the end pattern I get a little off.  I need much more quietness in my upper body and MORE LEG EXTENSION.  Deeper edges too!  I like the feel of the dance, especially during the Chasses.
