Inspired by Dancing on Ice, Team Boudavida headed to the rink to give ice skating a go. Surely we’d be smashing the triple axel in no time?!
With a limited background in ice skating, reserved predominantly for the festive period on crowded rinks, we were daunted by the large empty ice that faced us when we arrived. We retreated to the safety of the side of the rink for several laps, before slowly building our confidence to venture further away from the edge.
Soon enough Team Boudavida were gaining momentum and attempting to perfect our turns and pick up speed. AJ was especially determined to nail a beautiful arabesque! There were of course a few falls along the way, demonstrated by Anabel who showed us falling over can still be graceful and elegant!
The whole team massively improved over the course of the session and we came away having had a lot of fun and feeling like we’d make massive progress since our tentative first steps on the ice. Gaby was the true star of the team who really showed us how it should be done!
Check out the video below to see our efforts on the ice and do let us know what sport you’d like us to try next month - we want to hear from you!
