ready sturdy Deborah Harry here the fountain vallye skating Center another late night video for you I'm with the dirty school skate and sugar roller skates and tonight we're gonna do things just a little bit differently tonight I'm gonna actually show you what we're gonna learn first and then we'll go through instruction okay so hopefully Xavier who's filming can keep up with me and we can get this thing rolling now this what I'm gonna show you tonight is one of the most commonly requested items and I get it like this hey can you show me how to do that thing you know where you go like that with your feet okay what I think most people are asking for they say that thing where you know you're skating you put one foot in front of the you another all right pack what I think they're talking about is this as we cruise around the skating the Lord the roller rink you can just be moving to the beat of the music you don't have to push backward you just push it out and bring your foot forward so we push out bring it forward out bring it forward really fast we're gonna the Xavier can stop now that we're going fast all right you got to know how to do scissors scissors probably one of the very first things you ever learned if you ever took a skating class ever when the first things you learn is scissors and it looks like this we start with your feet out arms out you push it out bring it in push it out bring it in looks simple looks easy but there's a lot of stuff going on here number one body weight we drop our body weight down bend our knees pick up our body weight get your knees back together down down down down down up up up up up you see me do this before in other videos and I say down with the butt up with the gun down with the bus up with the gun down down down up up when I say up up up I literally can feel me pressing my gut against my spine and sucking it all up that's what's bringing my feet together I steer my feet together a bit with my knees so when I say down I push my knees right back together to bring it in all right so those are scissors you've gotta have to do a ton of scissor and I tell you this you the benefit of scissors is strengthens your edges strengthens your legs and gives you a better but no one's gonna complain about that am i right okay now when we're thinking of skating around the floor how can we do scissors it just might look silly if we're just going down but I'll put the gun up with the gun all the way around no one wants to do that to make it look good it may be moving nice and easy you need to go down push out bring one foot forward down push out bring one foot forward let me show you forward now down the bub we're up with the gut we're bringing the feet together and as we bring it together you're gonna be writing on your heel that means the vast majority of your body wood is going to be put on your skating leg when I say skating leg I mean the leg attached to the ground your free leg or the leg that comes up off the ground it's gonna be riding on its heel as it comes forward then you bring it back you go down out up and forward up on your heel so to get comfy with this might want to just skate forward and pop one heel like that pop your toe up like that all right just go down and up down up down Oh right so we look down out and up down out and up down out up a lot of people worry about this when they bring their feet close together because they think if they're going to hit you're gonna hit more often than not this will not happen but it's definitely gonna happen if you look at your feet if you stare at your feet you're practically willing your skates to come together hit them okay you need to look ahead the other thing is we're gonna say this skating is a social sport you may be here by yourself at the ring meaning you came by yourself you didn't come with a bunch of people and you're out there skating around but skating and inherently is a social sport so in order for you to do it and look good doing it as you're skating along you need to be looking around talking to people at least making eye contact and smiling okay this kind of attitude facilitates this kind of skating where you're just cruising along having a good time okay so I'm go down out up down up down bring it in up down and they'll bring it in and up now we're just cruising stuff there's lots of variations on this later on where you put your own style and grooves into it but right now I just need you to get this basic maneuver down so scissors purse you tons and tons and tons of scissors and then start bringing it forward and up forward again up alright you guys so I hope you learned something in this video maybe something that you can share with others I get a lot of feedback on watched your video I learned how to do it and then I taught someone else and I cannot even express how exciting it is for me that if I teach you something you teach someone else something and now we all know how to skate so please feel free to take these words my crazy little ways of expressing things and go ahead and teach it to other people okay I would love to spread the good word right skating it's like a religion all right all right you guys we gotta go saviours gotta go like skiing tomorrow or something apparently they have to go home otherwise we just stay here all night all right skaters thank you so much for watching this video now as always go practice you you

    I watched this before I went out tonight and spent an hour and a half at the rink working on getting it…and it worked! Thank you so much! I haven’t been able to figure out how to get my feet to crossover until today. It’s starting to feel more natural and have a better flow because of this video and I can see how many other things I’m working on will benefit! Thank you💕

    Now I realize what I've been doing wrong, finally! 🤣 What I think I was doing wrong is not putting enough weight on my skating leg and then definitely not putting just my heel of the free leg down. I think I was putting tie down and then getting squirrelly. So I'm gonna try it your way tomorrow! Thanks for such great instructions.

    I must say that I practiced this last weekend at the skater park and I caught myself having a "Dirty Deborah" voice in my head telling me "don't look at your feet", "snack area TIGHT", "down with the butt up with the gut" hahaha 😀 But IT WORKED!!! Thank you!!! 🙂 Can you make a video on how to skate downhill? It really scares me because I don't feel that I can stop. I am practicing my transitions but the area here isn't very flat so there are tons of small up-and-downs.

    I use your tutorials to help me skate. I bought myself some new skates with better outdoor wheels; thanks to Amyzon at Empire Skate I have the right equipment. The skates are awesome they are so smooth. One very important question….how do you make a quick stop! I skate at a park and sometimes dogs will run in my path and I don't want to trip over them or hurt them…or myself!

    Can you do a video or explain this concept. I see many jam skaters without toe stoppers or rather those toe plugs. when they are going around the floor dancing and stuff how do they stop? I want to get into jam skating as well as skate park stuff, but I when I took my toe stop off and used a jam plug it is like I forgot how to skate lol.
