Skating update

Now that the competition's over, we're back to loop and flip (loop, always loop...I swear, I'm throwing a party when I finally land this damn jump on one foot) and footwork. I want to have fabulous brackets, counters, and rockers. After a week, I'm able to do a tiny, wobbly version of the forward outside/back inside bracket sequence from the Adult Gold Moves test.

I think I found next year's program music: this most excellent rendition of "Down by the Salley Gardens" (well, more specifically the part from 1:39 to 3:24, ending with that lovely variation on "and now am full of tears").

Or I may possibly end up doing it as a Dramatic Showcase piece? To be honest, I don't really get the difference between freeskate and showcase; especially at the Pre-Bronze level, where the music is the same length and you just get one fewer jump in showcase. I guess the judging is supposed to be more predicated on choreography and emoting? Except we still use 6.0 judging at my level, so it hardly matters. But basically it sounds like you get to do two programs instead of just one, so that would be fun.
