Teaching skating for a TV ad

Asha taught three actresses to skate last week for a TV advert. The instructions from the director were: we need them to skate side by side, shoulder touching shoulder, really fast. I explained that due to skates pushing outwards, its not possible to be so close when skating, so we staggered the girls tightly behind each other and then got them cruising in scissors to be close together.

Just one of those challenges when creativity meets the reality of what is possible on skates.

The advert will be out in a month and the girls will be wearing pink and black cat suits (did they know those are the Sskatefresh colours?). We for one can’t wait to see what it looks like on the scree.
