Artistic Skating Workshop with Missy Rascal
12pm - 2pm on Sun 10th Mar - At the Thunderdome
Roller derby requires an awareness of body positioning and weight distribution to allow perfect edges, transitions, and powerful lateral movements. Come and learn some artistic skating moves from Rainy City All Stars veteran Missy Rascal, who will help you improve your fancy footwork skills.
What you will learn...
- One footed transitions – knowing where your weight should be for a smooth transition. We will also look at how to stay strong in this position if you are being blocked.
- Jumps – you will learn at least 2. For those who get that nailed within the session, we can move onto others. Jumps include toes loops, flips, loops and salchows.
- Spins – There are a number of different one footed spins in artistic skating. They are all about manipulating a sharp edge. You will learn 2 of these spins.
- You must be able to comfortably balance on one foot for five seconds rolling both backwards and forwards to get the most out of this bootcamp.
- Open to all genders
Missy Rascal started artistic skating from the age of six and has been playing roller derby with Rainy City since 2008. She’s represented England in the Roller Derby World Cup three times, including last year’s tournament in Manchester where England finished in 4th place.
Missy is also a qualified skate coach with a BRSF level 2 certification, so you’re in experienced hands!
