Judges Praise Ice Dance Standard

The standard of skating was so good in BISC's half-yearly dance competition on February 22 that even the judges commen- ted on its excellence.

The event once again ran like clockwork and finished with time to spare despite fears that there would not be time to fit in all 12 classes.

The number was up on last year because although there were again six compulsory and four original dance classes, the latest competition also included two free dance classes.

However the number of entrants and entries was lower- 34 entries by 15 skaters compared to 39 entries by 21 skaters last February.

It was good to see some new faces, boys as well as girls, and to see the progress made by the more experienced dancers. Although most of the results were predictable, Jen Truby whose skating looked far more confident, beat a competitor in last year's solo dance championships for which Jen had failed to qualify.
