Silver dance lesson ….

Same old same old.

After today’s lesson we are going to work on just the American for a while and get it test ready.  Tackling them 1 dance at a time.  I’m a little disappointed in myself.  I used to get them all done in one session but my progress has slowed immensely and there isn’t enough ice time or practice time.

Hello 2024

 Hi Skating Peeps:

Back from vacation in Hawaii and out of my flip flops and into my skates again.  I really should not be wasting my time and money on lessons without getting any practice in between them.  

I am going to reconsider my ice time in the coming weeks.  I hate to quit taking lessons from either of my coaches but I am literally the only one out there not getting any practice time in.  🤨 

Lesson today was so unproductive because I was out of sync with skating AND my blades need to be screwed in permanently.  I still am wearing the screws put on when I mounted the blades 1 1/2 years ago.  They finally started slipping.  

I’ll take care of that before I skate again hopefully 🤞 and try and figure out a sensible schedule for practice going forward.


Next Week TEST (trial)

 Last lesson this week before we try and lay this down in virtual test style.  We'll video and do full runs and see where we are at next...
