My daughter, Athena had her first ice skating lesson today. She wanted to do it as an add on to her ballet training and I was certainly willing.
So…pictures (She’s the one wearing the white pullover):
One of the things they did was have the kids sit on the ice and practice getting up. I guess this is like in Judo we learned how to fall without getting hurt. You’re going to fall, might as well get used to getting back up.
And some video of the little bit of “skating” they were doing at the end. Unfortunately, there was that big guy at the wall for much of it. I’ll try to get better video next time.
