Here you can check out all about my crazy adventures that skating has taken me. From seminars to shows, I'm sure you will find something entertaining from behind the scenes.


Jay Peak Show June 16th

It isn't very often that you have the opportunity to walk a few minutes to the beautiful venue that you are performing in with this spectacular view.  After passing a water feature that I would kill to have in my backyard, I step onto the ice to warm up.  After dealing with the ear issues and balance, my focus was to...ah... focus on being balanced!  This is still a young club and there was a lot of volunteers, parents, and out of club skaters that all flocked to support the skating director, Krista Boulanger.  (who not only choreographed a lot of the routines, but also skated an amazing number in the show too!)  As I'm getting ready to skate, I look over the running order and realize that I better be in shape skating both routines in the second half!  Thank you Silk for training me hard core!

The opening number was a Lady Gaga routine with a twist.  They had these SWEET rope lights that totally reminded me of Tron!

hmmm...an idea for a routine or at the very least a sweet Halloween costume for me!  Oh, but I would be very remiss if I didn't add the video I took of the hockey boys watching the practice of this number.  I have to admit it was pretty darn funny watching them dance around trying to imitate what the little girls were doing.

The show went really well and I skated decent too! Lynn and Logan were a great crowd pleaser as always.  If you saw the earlier post with this amazing 8 1/2 year old little girl doing her one arm pushups the story doesn't end there.  I made the mistake of challenging her to a contest.  Little did I know her twin sister had her back...or should I say mine!

I'm still doing the exercises to hopefully fix this "BPPV" issue.  So until next time (McCall Idaho for the 4th of July weekend!) be well!  And a big thank you to Jay Peak, Krista Boulanger, and her mother for driving an hour and half each way to the airport for me!
