Dancing on Ice 2021

You know you're a skater when you're more interested in who the professional skaters will be (TBA) rather than the 'celebs'.

Sliding on frozen water is the easy part of ice skating.

There was practice and filming at hemel the other week, someone was doing a setup skating over a ponytail to chop it off stunt. Not sure the people weee famous enough to be recognised (at least not by us)

Makes sense, since Bovingdon is only a couple of miles away;

Part of me was overjoyed to see Yebin Mok joining as one of the pros.  The other part is horrified.  What if she's injured by whoever she's skating with?!  They can't break Yebin Mok.  They can't.  She's precious! Such a beautiful, beautiful skater.
Returned to the ice in Sept 2017 after a major leg injury in 1999. Skating in Risport Royal Pro and MK Gold Star. Still scary after all these years...

She is one of the loveliest and probably wasted on DOI.  This is worth 3 minutes of anyone's time.  I always like to watch clips filmed close up by someone following on the ice rather than from remote cameras.  You get so much more sense of what they are doing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJMnYOxbbfg&ab_channel=MauroBruni


In a similar vein, another candidate for lovelist and filmed in a similar way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obCNrNQ7XRE&ab_channel=GANES

I've lost count of the number of times I've watched Yebin's Soliloquy, it's just wonderful.  As is the skating of Mauro Bruni, if you get chance to watch him, too.  Instagram has been very useful for some things!

I'd never seen that video featuring Carolina Kostner, thank you very much for that one.  She's another skater I really like.  Beautiful flow and lines.  None of the horrid, ugly Y-spirals and overly gymnastic feats, etc, in that video, just beautiful skating.

I didn't realise Mauro Bruni was a skater - I assumed he was just a choreographer.


The Caro vid was filmed in Rink 2 in Oberstdorf, Bavaria.  There are no barriers - just a small step down onto the ice - and there's a huge mirror running all the way across one end, and a window running all the way down one side.  Happy memories of many public sessions on that ice, the smoothest, fastest ice I have ever skated on, by a mile.  The band are from her home valley (Val Gardena) in Italy, singing in her home language (Ladin).


Rohene Ward is worth a look too, I think he is now doing choreo.  There are some clips of him jumping both ways.

Mauro Bruni is a lot more than just a choreographer.  He really is a beautiful skater. 

The description of the Obersdorf rink fills me with a desperate desire to travel and skate there.  <sigh>

No reason you can't go to Germany, but there are no public sessions at present only patch.  You'd need to arrange with the rink to get booked in - possibly need to book lessons with one of the coaches.  When we've been, my kids had signed up for lessons with the coaches so were allocated patch sessions, some for lessons and some for practice.  I just skated public sessions.  It is worth a visit.  Stunning town, too - scenery, shops, restaurants, swimming pool etc.

One day, hopefully.  For now, however, I'll be toggling between Cornwall and Hampshire as and when I have to.  Strange times...
