Marco Perea (MEX/USA)

Acrobatic Skating

The primary focus of this class will be on couples doing lifts and/or stunts either in a circle or straight line. The emphasis will mostly be on circular stunts. Skaters should have a good grasp of proper circular skating techniques, but if not, it will be shown. Due to the uniqueness of this sport, I will provide a link to the participants for the basics that they should be able to review and practice prior to the class. The videos will show skaters proper technique on how to pump in a circular motion, address proper body balance/positions for lifting to avoid injury and be efficient with the energy. Due to the nature of the stunts, participants are encouraged to bring safety helmets and have anti-slip hand powder or the equivalent.

David Isaac aka Blue (USA)

Couple Skating

Partner Skating is like the hustle dance on roller-skates. Both skaters must be on the same foot (example: Left, Right, Left, Right). Hands are not held too tight or too loose because partner skating requires both skaters to change hands during a certain turn or spin. When you are skating with someone for the first time, you must have good arm length between each other. At any time during partner skating, there is no swinging or jerking your partner arms/hands. One skater must lead in order for their partner to easily go into a comfortable turn or spin.
