WHAT HAPPENS ON THE CAMP
The Skate Camp is three hours long. You get two hours on the ice, which is split into two sessions. Vanessa and Hamish perform in-between the two sessions and, at the end of the camp, there's time to ask questions and take photos.
SESSION 1: SKATING SKILLS
We'll do a number of exercises to help improve your posture and strength, ankle bend, weight distribution on the blade, and ease of movement. We'll also work on your spins.
All of our exercises can be adjusted for every Skate UK and NISA test level so that nothing will be too simple or advanced for you!
If you're completely new to skating, we'll help you take your first steps on the ice, and get you comfortable moving forwards, backwards, and doing simple spins.
SESSION 2: PERFORMANCE AND MUSICAL TIMING
The focus of this session is presentation and performance. You'll learn how to make every movement have a meaning, and work on your musical timing.
In this session, you'll learn a routine choreographed by Vanessa and Hamish to an upbeat song. The routine will include some of the skills from the first on-ice session.
Vanessa is the winner of Dancing On Ice 2018 and a German junior national champion. She's a renowned professional skater and choreographer.
A former team GB figure skater, Hamish is a British national champion and international medallist. He's an esteemed coach and choreographer.
"My daughter had an absolutely AMAZING experience at The Skate Camp. Vanessa and Hamish are incredibly inspirational and their passion for skating is delivered wholeheartedly. True professionals."
