Contest Gets Skaters Moving

This year's field and dance moves competition attracted a total of 33 entries on November 9. This included nine entries by seven skaters in the two dance moves classes - a big improvement on last year when there was just one entry in each class - but only 24 entries in the six field moves classes.

Sadly the overall standard, particularly in much of the field moves, was low. But there were some good performances, notably Hannah Hetebrij, who moved up from first at prelim level last year to first at bronze, and Amy Barnes who moved from fourth at under Level 1 to first at novice.

As with other club competitions, the elements were geared to the abilities of skaters at different test levels, with the highest field moves class skating a pattern of moves devised by themselves which were judged for their innovation as well as execution.
