    For those of us without a skate class anywhere near us, these videos are absolutely essential.
    Please never stop making them, they are so helpful.

    Could you please add β€œmarkers” in your vids at each drill? I want to bring these vids with me to the rink and it would be handy to have a quick way to access the drills. Love your vids, thanks so much for sharing.

    Do your feet ever get sore/crampy from skating? I feel like I could skate so much better if my feet didn't end up killing me after 30 minutes…

    I have brand new Reidel’s and they are so STIFF! When I tie them up around my ankle, leaving top hook off, they make it almost impossible to sink down in my knees. Do you have any tips for softening? They are not leather. When I was 14, I used to skate with the tongue flap down, jeans tucked in the back and puffed out over the front of my skate. LOL… right? That was then, and now I am more concerned with safety. No need for broken bones.

    I'll add figure 8's to my warmup now. Thanks. I've noticed that I have a "good foot;" have you identified fun routines to get off the good foot?

    I'm no professional but
    I love showing people that just started skating little things like this and then watch them improve drastically in just a couple hours. I got one girl to go from being terrified of going backwards to actually turning (sloppy but functional) and going backwards. The next week we smoothed her turn.. she fell several times but kept trying..
    At the end of the session I was taking off my skates and she came off the floor and hugged me with tears in her eyes..
    I think that is what kept her skating. That is so awesome to me.
    I am teaching myself the 2 step.. 2 months ago I couldn't back step my left foot.. Now I am working on flowing it in the turn.. (right side is great, left… Not yet.. good footin.. 😏)
    Oh and I'm doing it on wide wheeled speed skates so there have been some clearance issues.. (read: crashing..).. to overcome. Still protecting my knee from the high speed crash a few weeks ago.. I might have cracked the knee cap.. there is a noticeable groove in it..
    Anyway, Thanks! Have fun. Looking good.

    I wish I could get the basics down but I feel like it’s all I can do to keep from busting my a$&! I was a good skater as a kid, I don’t understand!

    Really informative tutorial. Thank you! I now see how I'm using my edges without even thinking about it. I'm gonna give my edges a bit more respect now! 😁 Couple of questions for you Debs, do you inline? And have you done slalom in quads? Xx

    Started skating a little over a month ago. This is exactly what I needed to practice next at the rink.
