Ralph Gardner, Jr. of the Wall Street Journal writes about taking a lesson with JoJo Starbuck at Rockefeller Center rink in NYC: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...93950214665982
"One of the things I enjoy most about Rockefeller Center is you feel all of the energy of the city," she [Starbuck] added as we laced up our skates. "As a skating teacher, I'm always telling my students to look up. You have fabulous things to look up at."
That was my main concern. I didn't mind looking up at the flags waving in the wind, or 30 Rock or the Christmas tree that's just been delivered but won't be lighted for a few more weeks. It was all the tourists pointing and probably asking each other, "Who's that fool in the parka trying to ice dance with JoJo Starbuck?"
