Annie's Edges: Exploring the edge with Anne Schelter
This workshop is not about the jumps and spins. Instead, the focus is on everything that happens in between the elements. Skaters will learn exercises and patterns to improve stroking skills, edges, and turns. They will also explore different types of transitions and creative movement. Annie's Edges is known world wide as an enjoyable way to work on the fundamentals of good basic skating technique.
