My daughter is 13 and skating at Intermediate level this year. Her scores are all over the place, but generally she's been in the top half of her groups and has medaled and made it to final rounds.
Her PC scores are weaker than technical, performance and interpretation lower than the others, skating skills highest.
She's not a natural performer and is going through a bit of teen "I don't want to look goofy." It's a paradox, but although she loves to compete, she doesn't like getting "all emotional" in front of people. I know some of this is just time and maturity.
However, she wants to work on PCS for the remainder of the season and try to more consistently place in top half of group.
What advice, ideas, exercises, overall philosophy, etc. do you suggest for her? I need to help her tackle this on a practical end (Exercises and explanations for How to project more and How to "hear" the music better and connect to it.) and on the psychological end (e.g. "It may feel weird to project/emote at fist, but the more you do it, the better you'll get", etc.)
I know dance class is a plus/must. Is there anything else she could try to hone this skill on ice or off ice.
