Tag Team Coaching
Jo commented on my last post that she finds success with this particular turn by mindfully leading with her entry side hip which is another way of saying that I need to rotate more prior to establishing the entry edge for the turn.
I tried it several times under the combined glare of the brother-sister coaching pair and had limited but promising success. I'll need to try this on my own when I get a chance to skate again later in the week.
Another benefit of having a second coach is that there was a second pair of eyes watching as Coach A. and I practiced chasses and back swing rolls. Coach B. pointed out that I was wide stepping most of the time--something that his sister can't see while we're partnered. So, lots to think about and tidy up.
After my lesson was over the brother-sister pair practiced several dances together during the remaining ice time. A treat to watch!
