    Is Michelle Kwan underrated

    Underrated? No. Overrated? Potentially but imo no. Just 10 to 15 years ago people wouldn't shut up about her. So many people regard her as perfect and the greatest of all time. Explain to me how that's underrated?

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    I was making masks and ran out of elastic so I substituted in strips of that lining that's used in skating dresses (I make my own dresses) and it's so much more comfortable than regular elastic imo, so if any of you guys have any of that lying around, try it.

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    I waited 3 weeks (15 hours on ice) to have a lesson. Same reason. It was totally worth it.

    When and how should we open schools?

    I will say, for many students, online school will teach better time management. It helped me when I was doing online school and now I think I can manage my time a lot better than I could before. But it's really detrimental for people who need a lot of attention (though that's on the schools). A...

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    Yep! It gets in my eyes while doing on doubles and above. Most spins where the body is upright (scratches, sit spins without variations, biellmanns without a layback entry for example) are generally fine, but the second there is some sort of movement (camels, laybacks, illusions, etc.) it's just...

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    2020 Governing Council... Novices doing quads?

    This is super late but I finally got around to reading the changes https://www.usfigureskating.org/news/article/2020-governing-council-concludes I'm so disappointed that they are encouraging this. It's such a young age to be doing quads on a growing body. 13 is the minimum age for Junior, do...

    Tennell announces coaching change to Zakrajsek

    I would disagree that you are born with a "fluid body." I know of professional dancers that were the opposite of graceful until they were 13 or even 14. You can't change your body, but you can change how you use it.
