Spins & Jumps

My lesson with Holly on the 8:15 FS at Gilbert, as usual.  Lots of people running programs today as there's competition tomorrow at Chandler.

I warmed up with stroking and crossovers.

Today's lesson:

  • spins -- first the exercise, then from the windup.  I actually got several that were pretty decent!  I'm really jazzed.  Still not consistent, but it's definitely improving.
  • waltz jump -- the jump itself is fine but I'm still not checking the landing well and I tend to have to step forward.  Ugh.
  • salchow -- still a work in progress.  Entry is improved but having issues landing well.
Still working on getting music for my new Light program.
