Yes that is right. When in ice dance you learn to skate both guys and girls steps. A word my coach and I developed.
For years being a girl I learnt girls stuff. But over the last twelve months, have taken to learning the boys stuff, which my much shorter than myself female coach loves because she can be the girl which is what she is.
Anyway it is great learning exercise and have found being on the boys side is a real challenge in terms of posture, positioning and also making sure that you have the holds right. Something as a girl may be important, but you kind of take it for granted.
So anyone else here do both roles? And how do you find it and what do you get out of it?
