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 8 years since I got back on the ice. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1600 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Baby Steps - Another Dance Lesson

Today I had another lesson and 1/2 on my Bronze dances.  I am making a little progress but the things that I am struggling with are


  1. Wide stepping my three turns
  2. Not really doing a back progressive - they look like chass├ęs sometimes
  3. Lunging forward when stepping from RFO edge to LFO edge .. especially on three turns
