Summer Training Tips: Program Training Outside

How can you train this summer if your rink is still closed under covid restrictions?

 

RUN PROGRAMS OUTSIDE

You’ve likely seen many figure skaters on social media turn to roller skating during the pandemic, but you don’t even need to purchase new equipment to keep your skating skills fresh!

 

Go somewhere with a decently-sized outdoor space (and flat ground to prevent twisted ankles). Work through your program as realistically as you can.  Even though you’re not on-ice, practice your choreography to your music.  You can even add in off-ice jumps to keep things as realistic as possible!

Figure Skating: The Glamour of NYC

Fifth Avenue Figure Skating2

 

Figure skating has long been the most stylish, most glamourous part of the Olympic Winter Games.  However, figure skating also has a very glittering past.

 

            You’ve heard of Fifth Avenue.  Before it was a fashionable destination, stylish New Yorkers flocked there for skating. Private skating ponds required membership but gave their members an atmosphere of live music, held splendid costume balls, and drew in the chicest skaters.  Can you imagine skating to the sounds of an orchestra, while being dressed to the nines and alongside the most fashionable people?

 

Skating also took to the stage in the era:  A 1915 Broadway show included a leading lady who was also a skating prodigy and some hotels had iced stages for shows.  Harper’s Bazaar would also even publish fashionable skating dresses and hairstyles for skating.

 

Skating united itself with these dazzling, sophisticated lifestyles. One of the most elegant avenues in the world owes its glamour, in part, to figure skating.

Thankful

IMG 2334

So much to be thankful for. Not to sound cliché, but honestly, where would we be without coaches that push us and parents that support us? Thanks, parents especially, for constantly cheering us on and paying for our ice time, coaching, skates, dresses, competitions, and on and on. We know you’ve sacrificed for us, and we’re so grateful. https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/emoji.php/v9/t9c/2/16/1f9e1.png"); background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;">????
