Eight Wheels of Happiness
I skated the Trios special with a couple of my friends, and it was pretty damn terrifying lol. It is only my second time doing it. There were lots and lots of people on the floor and being in the middle of the trio, it really feels like you are going to completely whack into the people you are coming up on. It's a bit hard to explain. But up in Cerritos, all the specials are for three songs and that felt like an eternity when I was out there skating the trios. I was so ready to quit after one song, but I hung in there. It's terrifying but also very exciting. I would definitely do it again. And check out this awesome 1922 postcard I found online. This is exactly how trios are done!
I recently learned this new backwards step, it took me FOREVER to master it but finally, I have! Such a good feeling. Everyone knows how to do it and it's so awesome to be able to join the others and follow the step correctly. We always do this step to that song "Forget Me Nots" and they play that at the rink every week. I also learned how to do the cha cha recently, another type of skating line dance. It's so cool!
I'm going to Cerritos twice in August, it's so awesome! I can't wait. Until then, see you at Skate World.
