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!

Last Coffee Club of 2017

Small but fun group on December 22.  Our last Adult drop in coffee club of 2017 with Valerie Anderson.  Everyone seemed like they weren’t into the lesson today (except me!) but we had fun.

Coffee Club fun with Power Pulls

Kimmi Jeffers, one of newest coaches at Lilac City Figure Skating Club coached a small but eager group of skaters in coffee club today.

We did some really fun (and tiring) exercises with edges and hockey pushes and worked on forward and backward power pulls and integrating them with cross steps.

Great fun - great lesson

Chrismtas Program Last Lesson/Run

Ok, first the excuses.

1. This program was put together in 2 weeks.
2. We are not skating more than 1-2 times a week
3. We are not in skating shape (mostly me)

Given all that... here’s the full run of a very short and very lightly choreographed number.
