Slinky Ice Dance

It’s Riverside Rhumba day 🙂 It’s hard to believe this fun, slinky ice dance is introductory level. Even when abbreviated it sounds racy (RR)!

Are you ready to sashay away?

RR has a few special moves that make it stand out from other entry level Pattern Dances.

  • Ronde
  • Change of Edge

To be sure you get familiar with them, we’ve slowed those down with a little extra detail for you. Follow along to get a feel for them, rewind and try again if you need to….Marika won’t mind repeating it for you 😉

Top Tip! If the video is moving too quick, you can slow it down by changing the Playback speed!

A picture guide to changing the playback speed on YouTube
1: Click Settings (or the 3 dots top right corner on a phone version)
2: Click Playback Speed
3: Select your speed (0.5 is 50% slowed down)

After the on ice demos we’ll practice an off ice walk through together.

Timing gives with Ice Dance its slinky and sensuous character

Once you feel comfortable with the steps it’s time to learn the timing with prompts. Blue for Left foot & Red for Right.

When you feel ready, there’s rehearsal music at the end of this tutorial so you can try the dance without any prompts and build your confidence to fly solo.

We hope you enjoy this mellow tune as a little throw back from the 1980’s.
