The emphasis of this class is to develop a flow of edges to move effortlessly across the ice. Components of the class include deep edges, turns, and figure skating moves. Skaters will work on the development of proper body alignment and blade usage, leading to more secure edges and stronger, more efficient generation of power on different types of steps, turns, and strokes. The end goal is greater speed and stability across the ice. Creative and innovative edges and steps and turns are taught, which will evolve into step sequences that can be used in competitive programs.
This conditioning class of edges, power drills, turns, footwork combinations has a great emphasis on the development of power and quality of movement. Length of strokes are in direct relation to the amount of power a skater is able to develop, and quickness is the actual foot speed of the strokes. Using both of these concepts, along with correct body alignment and lean to create maximum power, skaters will develop more difficult elements at a much faster rate, while improving basic skating skills. Class is taught on full ice set to music and is a continuous 30-minute aerobic workout on ice, pushing the skaters to their limits of endurance.
So You Think You Can Skate! A fun and enjoyable class to expand a skater’s knowledge of new elements. For example, Spread Eagles, Hydro Blades, Illusions, and more.
