I have worked so hard to make this coffee club a reality and I don't want to lose it. I hope I can get some more skaters to show up next week. We have a guest coach coming up from McCall Idaho!
So Hank and I were the only ones who skated. We had Stephanie Krupke-Parkinson all to ourselves, which was both fun and interesting since Stephanie is not a pairs coach! We worked on crossovers, Waltz jumps and Toe Loops. We were introduced to the Toe Walley. Basically a Toe Loop with a different entry. I have never been able to do one - nor have I tried. I think I am going to try to learn to do one this way. According to Stephanie you can get more spring from it. We also worked on getting our sit spins lower. I found out today that Hank can actually squat all the way down. On the video I have a typo... I said "He can't get all the way down" and I meant to say "He CAN get all the way down"! ... now we just have to incorporate that squat into a spin!
