Adult Pre Bronze Free Dance Test and Adult Solo Juvenille Free Dance Test

 They say it ain’t over till the fat lady sings… an opera reference and probably not a politically correct one at that.  Well the fat lady has sung and she skated too!

Honestly I am really proud of our partnered free dance.  Mike and I started this journey early this summer and with only 1-2 max practice sessions per week and a weekly lesson with Kendall LeClaire who has the patience of a saint.   

After testing and skating competitively for 11 years as an adult skater .. I have learned that I NEVER FEEL READY for anything.  Not a test nor a competition.  It seems to get worse and worse as I get older.

Nevertheless we did our best this morning.  We both got a pass by all three judges.  We each had plenty of notes on things to improve on.

Following that skate I had to wait for 2 other moves in the field tests.   I skated ok during my solo FD test but not my best for sure.  Darn it.   But I did pass that too and now I have some new goals for Arizona.

Goals for the winter.

Test my PRE-SILVER dances with a partner (my coach most likely) and work on the skills within those dances and hopefully pass the tests and start to learn the Silver Dances.

Last (regular) Dance (lesson) for the summer

Ok .. this is IT.  I’m off to the land of no ice rink for a month or so.  I’ll be back home a few times over the summer but won’t be able to...
