DANCE / Tricks CLASS

17 APRIL 2020
TIME – 1900-2100
LOCATION – TBA

Asha’s dance class can be attended by various ability levels from advanced beginner upwards. Each dance move comes with 3 options of difficulty (easy, medium and hard) so everyone can work at their own pace and progress into the harder forms even after the class is over.

This class will work through a series of individually taught moves (e.g. Moonwalk, New York Shuffle) which we will then sequence into a choreography that we’ll film, so you have reference to it forever. This means you can continue to improve it and teach it to your friends for performing at the roller disco, events and meet-ups.

Each dance move can be taken out of the dance choreography and used in your normal skating to spice up your flows and give your skating that extra ‘wow’ factor. This class is super fun and you’ll notice your improvement with every new move.

Please remove heel brakes for dance class if on inlines.
Quads also allowed with or without toe/heel stoppers.

PRICE: $40 (USD)

Stops and Slides

18 APRIL 2020
TIME: 10:00 TO 12:00
LOCATION: TBA

The most important of ALL skate skills is how to stop and every skater should have several high functioning stopping methods in their tool kit (that stop you to a standstill from your highest skating speeds). If your stops don’t do this yet, know that you are pushing the risks, and that you should invest in your safety and longevity on wheels. Not stopping well will reduce your overall learning curve of everything else on skates, so it really is THE place to focus. If you do just 1 class with Asha, do this one!

We begin with the easier stops and work through to more complex ones. Higher level skaters will perform the same stops and combos but from higher speeds (so increasing significantly the difficulty and challenge).

 

This workshop is NOT suitable for beginners (who should focus 100% on mastering the Heel Brake Stop before any other methods). If you are a Beginner check out the Beginner class above.

 

Stops we will cover in detail

  • Stepping Plough Stop
  • T-Stop (so that it actually stops you, both sides, on corners)
  • Turn Stops (pre-requisite for Hockey Stop and Parallel Slide)
  • Powerslide (forwards entry)
  • Combining Stops into functional combos
    (eg, T-Stop + Plough or Turn Slalom + T-Stop + Powerslide).

SKATE WELL FOR SPEED + FITNESS

19 APRIL 2020
TIME: 10:00 TO 12:00
DURATION: 2hrs
Location: TBA

Every skater spends MOST of their time on skates JUST SKATING!

However if your Skating Stride lacks the essentials you will not get the Fitness benefits that skating offers and you may create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’, little improvements in speed and boredom.

There are 3 parts to your skating Stride; The Push, the Glide and the Regroup.

All 3 must be correct for the stride to flow, look good and produce sustained high speeds.

Are you Pushing efficiently?

Is your Glide correct in terms of edges and cadence?

Is your Regroup position maximising your Stride or is it destroying all the hard work you just put in?

Asha’s series of Stride exercises is designed to progressively train all 3 parts of your Stride and help you understand what’s needed for super smooth (and fast) skating. This workshop will leave you with many drills to train and perfect over coming weeks which will improve your technique and your fitness and lower body strength if you do them regularly.

This workshops is NOT appropriate for Beginners. You should already be able to skate and stop.

 PRICE: $40 (USD)
