In honor of Star Wars Day- Star Wars The Musical On Ice
I’m looking to upgrade my blade. I realize I’m pushing the limits of the astro blade I currently used. I’m 6’1 male with beginning jumps and leaning more towards the dance track. I still have fun with the single stuff as well. Just learning to skate to skate, as i’m closely approaching 40.Let me know any feedback.
Practice like you’ve never won.
Perform like you’ve never lost.
I had recently ordered a new pair of skates (I went to a store, got fitted, tried on a pair which were one of the few available even though he said they might be a little big, and they were a little too big so the guy ordered me a sligtly smaller pair of Jacksons, didn’t get to try them on in store so they were shipped to my house instead of going tp the store). I got back to the rink a little while later and all of a sudden I’d gone from a 7 to a 5 ½ in the rentals. It wasn’t hugely noticeable but it was enough to make a definite difference. Soon after, it was like skating lost its natural feel, but that is pretty much mental.My new skates came in but I don’t know if they’re fitting right or not. I’ve got some tpe room, and I can feel my ankle lifting some as I step. Not by alot, as my heel is lifting just enough for it to not exactly touch the bottom, but this is what the guy fitting me told me to watch out for. Also, idk if my ball of my foot is supposed to get a little numb or not. I don’t know if I can lace them up as well as he did, so maybe it’s that, but I’ve been waiting a long time to get these skates I wanr to be certain that they are right for me.
You’ve probably seen so many text posts related to this but I’d really like to know: how far do you think I can get in skating?I’m 16 years old, turning 17 in July. I’ve been skating since November and have been able to land a waltz jump by myself. I just started taking group lessons (for kids) only 2 weeks ago. I’ve also got a private coach whom I’ve had 1 private lesson with so far for 30min, a former Olympian (but will continue having lessons with each week). I’m petite in physique, am quite light and naturally flexible (I’ve been working to increase this though, ever since I’ve started). I’m prepared to work hard and am thinking of starting ballet classes after my exams. Currently I only skate about 3 hours a week but hoping to increase it as time goes on. I have no background in sports except for a year or two in horse riding :pHow far do you think I can get in the sport, considering my situation? Thanks for reading this hella long text post!
