Practice Day Finally

I have been skating only once a week for a while now, taking a lesson on the day I skate.  This is a really bad plan for learning anything - lessons without practice -

During my session today I practiced all three of the Bronze Ice Dances.  I have probably said this before, but I must reiterate: Dancing solo is much harder than dancing with a partner.  You really have to feel secure on your edges, especially the back edges.

It’s not the best video but you can see my trouble areas.

  • Wide stepping the three turn on the Hickory Hoedown
  • Going off pattern during the swing roll
  • Doing Chasses vs back progressives on the Willow Waltz
  • Wide stepping the three turn on the Willow Waltz
  • Messing up the steps on all dances especially the Ten Fox (It’s pretty new)
But I do feel progress is being made.  Just not as quickly as I would like.

Shamefully Back on the Ice After Another Month Off

  I finally snagged an afternoon public session to get back on the ice for the first time in a month! No lesson scheduled for the near futur...
