No pairs pictures yet, but here's a bunch from the competition I was in this weekend. These are from my showcase program to "It's Oh So Quiet". Sorry they're all so big.

Oh I was wondering if it was practice because you had your jacket on. Hey the pic with the gloves is so cool and your dress is so pretty! Did you tailor it? I can never find such pretty material where I live (bah). Yes, like the others mentioned, you have such great facial expression and your spread eagle looks so powerful!
I think your second photo looks really cute. ;D

Thanks for all the nice comments! I love doing showcase programs because I can just let loose and really get into it. I actually got the dress online from Sharene Skatewear and I had them bead it. But I started the program with my gloves and sweater on, and my hair in a bun. I throw off the sweater first, then whip my hair out of the bun and let it fall down, then throw my gloves up in the air right before the lutz. I had to practice that a lot to make sure I didn't run over any of those things afterward. :)
I ended up tying for fourth, which I was perfectly happy with, considering it was a national competition and I hadn't competed in singles in a long time. It was weird not skating pairs, but I really like the program so I will probably do it again at more comps.

Hi!

I agree with the others, you have nice expression and you look talented. How long have you been skating? Wich category are you competing in? And just to know, what is a showcase program, is it like an artistic program (dont have to jump and you have a theme)? And if it is in deed a competition program, wich competition allow (sp?) accessories? (the fact that you throw your sweater and your gloves)... Sorry if I'm not clear.

Anways... I just love your position in your spread eagle, lovely! I also really love the 6th picture from the top (second one without the sweater). And I don't know if it's because of the moment the picture was taken, but in your arabesque, i'm sure you can straight the knee of your supporting leg a bit more. My coach gave me this tip once : try to get the sensation that you push forward the foot of your supporting leg (I know you cant put weight on your toes, it's just a feeling you have to gat). It gives an nice impression, I swear.

Again, If I m not clear, PM me, I'll try to clarify myself

Congrats for your 4th place. Wow, national, that's nice!

Seastar-

In a showcase program, (sometimes called artistic), you are judged more on the interpretation of the music rather than technical elements. You don't even get a technical score. You can still jump and spin in the program though, but usually no doubles are allowed. Every competition's rules are different, but most of the time you are allowed "props", so in this case, my props were part of my costume. Showcase programs are also the only ones that you are allowed to have music with words.

And when you say arabesque, are you talking about the spiral? That move is called a spiral in skating. And I didn't even notice, but it does look like my supporting leg is bent a little. It's a back spiral, so maybe it was bent for a bit, or maybe I was just going into it. I'm not really sure.

I really love your dress- great work on the program! Who choreographed your artistic program? Did you get any input?

Thanks for your precisions ballerina. Because i'm french speaking, the technical terms are a bit different for me. So spiral is arabesque in french, even in skating. Because you were backwards, it can explain your knee, or like you said, maybe you were getting into your position. Anyways, i'm sure that you will be aware of that next time on the ice.

Your description of the showcase program is exactly what I had in mind, were call it here artistic program, simply.

You didn't tell what competition it was, i'm interested to know.

thanks again for you reply

Skatendance-

My choreographer, Heidi Thibert, put my program together. And unfortunately, there weren't any judging critiques at this competition. I don't think they usually do critiques for showcase programs anyway.

I have a question? Arent you ususally cold on the ice? Do you wear more than pair of tights to keep you warm?

I don't really get that cold. Some rinks are a lot colder than others, and it may be a little chilly when you first get on the ice, but just by stroking around a little bit, I warm up pretty fast. When I practice on cold rinks, I'll wear a sweater and gloves, and I always wear two pairs of tights: one pair that goes inside my skates and one that's worn outside of them.

I love your dress, it's so pretty! What club do you skate with because I thought I saw state flags in the background of one picture. What competition was that?
