Today I finally had another chance to skate at Chandler Ice Den. This is the rink I thought I would skating at more often. It’s slightly farther away but considerably warmer - as you will see by my ability to strip down to a tee shirt after getting fully warmed up.
It was imperative that I skated today because I have another lesson tomorrow. I was pretty tired during practice but forced myself to really practice the Hickory Hoedown 4-5 times and I even got my RinkMusic fob to work so I could make a few runs with music.
Dance is really interesting. On the surface I will admit it sometimes seems boring, skating round and round in specific patterns. But trying to hold your upper body in dance frame and getting your edges right and proper extension and the correct steps is not easy. And to anyone who tests or competes in the solo dance series .. hats off to you. I think it’s really hard to dance alone. I prefer leaning on a partner!
Today’s video is a bit long. I tried going through my Moves in the Field and even spit out a few spirals, a waltz jump and a scratch spin at then end of the session.
