My Cool Workout Adult Skating Camp for recreational and competitive skaters in Budapest was simply magical! Skaters came from Hungary, Helsinki, Finland and Rome, Italy and ranged in age from 17-63. What a fabulous group it was! We instantly became a family as we plied, skated, laughed, groaned, (and ate) our way through the 4 day camp in one of the world’s most beautiful cities!
Our focus included ballet basics for the ice, posture, free leg positions, arms and head positions, figures, combinations of moves, some partnering, spins and making the most of every move you do!
The camp included a welcome reception, daily ballet/stretching class, daily figures class, daily edge classes, private lessons, performances, and a dinner cruise on the Danube on a spectacular summer’s evening. We walked through the city’s breathtaking sights, including The Parliament, Hero’s Square, castles and museums. We stayed at a marvelous hotel, learned about Hungarian history, bought paprika and simply loved our Budapest experience together!
So grateful to my friend Judit Somodi for her great organizational skills and tireless efforts in bringing us all together! Here’s to our next Cool Workout Camp for Adult Skaters! Where will it be?!?!? We’ll keep you posted…hope you’ll join us!
