My first coach taught me how to to a 'show stop' and I lay that thing down like an Olympic Gold Medalist.
Oh, you say, anyone can do a T-stop.
I'm not talking about a T-stop, I'm talking about a show stop.
A show stop is this:
Erect Posture, Then
Tits and Teeth!
|Back in my 30's with a good bra, I could do this picture.|
And if you really don't want to say "Tits and teeth" give the audience "The Girls and Pearls"!
Babbette: I'm a little confused by your nomenclature. To me a "show stop" is analogous to a "Tango stop"; ie: the braking blade is placed in front of the skating foot while in the case of the T-Stop, regardless of whether or not it's, um, "showy" is a stop wherein the braking blade is behind the skating foot. Mais oui? I can T-stop, especially if the right blade is the brake, with the best of them. But the Show Stop, aka Tango Stop? Sadly not yet in my tool kit.ReplyDelete
Well, a tango stop is a tango stop. To be a show stop, yes you're right it has to be a show(y) stop! Tango or T-stop, chest out , big smile, good posture!Delete
"Tits and teeth!" I'm soooo practicing this!ReplyDelete
