Pairs Program Practice

My pairs partner and I continue to work on our program to get it ready for Sectionals (which is next week…AHHHH!).

He and I hadn’t practiced on a freestyle session together since before Nashville (Sept/Oct). He had been busy working on his Adult Gold skating skills test, and I have been preoccupied with my free skate program. We finally got together a few weeks ago.

Because our event is being judged under 6.0, we don’t have to achieve a “real” death spiral for the program. We’ve been working on various exercises to help each of us individually, but we haven’t been able to correctly put our parts together yet.

We played around with the ending a bit to see if this version of a death spiral could be kosher for the competition. I had my partner reach out to a pairs tech specialist to get his take, so we’ll see what the verdict is!
