These Advanced workshop will get to the technical heart of your skating. Asha’s expert techniques allow you to progress through each skill step by step in a way that will allow first time learning and higher level polishing to happen in the same class. Advanced skills don’t get ‘learned’ in a day, they are a process of mixing specific body movements in a carefully planned order so that you increase the ability each time you practice correctly. You will have a logical ordering of exercises (for each skill) which will structure your practice to guarantee post-class improvement.
Other opportunities to learn and practice Advanced level skills can be found in our Intermediate/Advanced level
One Day Intensive, held on the following date:
Saturday 14th September, 10am-1pm, 2.30pm – 5.30pm
Skills taught (in rotation) at Advanced workshops
The students each month help choose the next workshop topics. These often include;
Backwards Crossovers, Backwards Crossunders, Mohawk transitions, Jumps, Spins, Grapevine, Barrel Roll, Backwards Powerslide, Three Turns, Inverted Mohawk, Backwards T-Stops, combinations of transitions/mohawks/three turns/jumps (and other skills on request).
The class content will be a continuation of more advanced backwards skating, discovering where the ‘gaps’ are in your backwards skating repertoire (usually in the area of favouring one leg for weight bearing and edge control). You need to be comfortable with general backwards skating and already be doing a transition. This is a workshop for those who feel their backwards skating is very one sided and who want to increase their skill set and begin to sequence backwards moves and transitions to create flowing, unique and impressive looking skating.

Here’s a video of Asha skating backwards in Amsterdam using many advanced level skills, particularly backwards crossovers and backwards crossunders, mohawks, backwards inverted mohawks, and three turns.
