Skating Basics

Skating club:
Frustrating. We worked on basic stroking and crossovers, which meant I actually had to pay attention and do them properly, which I never do because it’s boring. And I know we need to learn basics before we work on more difficult stuff, but I’ve learned them. And I hate the way the class is divided into beginners and advanced and ne’er the twain shall meet. They’ve been doing a pretty good job of teaching us footwork and dances, but still. I want my spins and jumps back, dammit.

Anyway, we didn’t do basics long enough for me to get too bored, before we moved on to the Canasta Tango, of which I can now do the first three steps before I forget what comes next. If we do it another 3-4 times I’ll figure it out.
