How much is your skating lessons per month?

Depends on the month. 30mins costs $64.20. I also pay $135 for a 3 month unlimited skating pass. Otherwise you have to pay an extra $14 for entry during your lesson time slot.

Some months I have 30mins lessons weekly, so that's about 4-5 lessons a month. Some months I have fewer lessons. This month I've only 1 lesson. I guess how many lessons I take really depends on how much time I have to practice in between and what I am working on. If I know what I am doing and can practice on my own, then I cut down on the lessons because $$ is an issue. ;)

im usually scared to talk to new people because one i said hi to someone and they gave me the death glare? TRAUMATISED ):

I'm gonna give you the death glare if you don't say hi HAHAHA. No, no I'm kidding. But people say I look really fierce when I'm skating. :( I swear I'm not. It's just how I look when I don't smile okay. And if I don't have any friends, I can't be smiling at nothing. :(

Anyway omg, I'm scared to talk to the people at Jcube because everyone already knows each other and I feel like everyone is judging me so... giving death glares at everyone. :P

I'm @cheryllsf on instagram so you can talk to meeee off anon hehe. I've gotten to know quite a few skaters through insta :)

yup i take lessons but what im learning is different from what youre learning (?)

Ooh what are you learning? Do you take lessons at Jcube? If you do, they use their own syllabus for the group LTS figure classes. I think group LTS figure is the same as freestyle 1-2.
Haha basically it's all the same thing. It's just that different coaches have different styles so they may teach other stuff first etc.

HI WISE GIRL! :D

Wait, wise? Did you mean me? HAHAHA. Who is this!

why dont you follow syllabus? whats the difference bewteen freestyle and figure

Usually, skaters have to take a test for every level but in Singapore, we don't have that. So there isn't a need to work on stuff level by level. My coach will teach me stuff whenever I'm ready to learn something new. :)

Oh I didn't mean freestyle skating. It's just that in SG we learn figure skating using the ISI syllabus (link above) and there are different levels - beginner (pre-alpha to delta) and freestyle (1-10). So yup I'd be in freestyle 2-3 I guess.

Do you skate/take lessons? :O

View more

what level are you in?

I still suck haha but slowly getting there! I guess I'm ISI Freestyle 2-3? Idk, I'm working on my single salchow for jumps, one foot/scratch spin for spins and backward three turns for footwork. These are like FS2-4 stuff. We don't really follow the syllabus.

How often do you skate with your coach? Do you practice much without him? You're such an inspiration! ♥

Haha thank you. :) I have 30mins with my coach every week and skate at least twice a week. I have work Mondays to Fridays 9am to 7pm and spend Saturday and Sunday at the rink hahaha. I'm crazy that way.

Anyway, I'm working harder right now because I really want to land single jumps and get to proper scratch/sit spins.. so I've skated 3-5 times a week this month hahahaha.
