Glide with Glenjamin- Thursday
This class gets to the core of what skating is! It’s the organic flow of edges and how they can take you effortlessly across the ice. The class includes deep edges and turns and figure skating moves. The athletes in the class will work toward being in precision with each other while doing edge moves. All has to look effortless. When you see skating that is so smooth it seems to float, then you can be sure this is the foundation that lies underneath. This is what judges love to see and what they mean when referring to “the quality of the edge”.
