The Pro Shop / Re: Klingbeils!
« Last post by Ethereal Ice on October 21, 2017, 05:44:48 PM »
I don't think the company exists anymore. There is supposed to be a new company called Avanta that was created by a former Klingbeil person, but there have been some issues with it. If you are interested further, there is an Avanta thread below and I can also pm you some of the information I have regarding them.

The Pro Shop / Re: Club jackets

My club doesn’t have club jackets. Only those who do competitions/synchro/ice dance get them for free. Otherwise, they’re too pricey.

To quote the immortal Chazz Michael Michaels "It gets the people moving."

Commercial music gets the audience moving because it's been crafted to. It's a lazy coach's way to pick music that's not only successfully designed to get the audience to respond in a risk free way, but the audience has been trained to respond in a predictable way.

Spectator Skating Discussions / Commercialized music
« Last post by Meli on October 20, 2017, 07:38:48 PM »
Does anyone else get distracted when a skater uses a piece of music that's been heavily commercialized? Watching Polina Edmunds' SP made me wonder if she was sponsored by DeBeers. Whenever I watch someone skate to the music from Rodeo, I think "Beef, it's what's for dinner."

I realize it will play differently to an international crowd, but I do wonder the thought process of picking something that is familiar to the masses because it was used in advertising campaigns. (Let's face it, my boyfriend doesn't know ballet, but he knows what's for dinner.)

The Pro Shop / Re: Jackson Ultima Apex Blade - Polishing Towel

The post had characters that truncated my cut-and-paste, sorry.  Edited to correct.

I think the Eclipse cloths are about the size of eyeglass wiping cloths. Maybe this is the same?
My Eclipse Auroras came with an ~11.5" X 10" polishing cloth.  At first I thought it was silly.  But it turns out to be very absorbent (don't know for sure, but I suspect it's microfiber).  Since it's thin and flexible, it's very handy for drying around the mounting plates.

Where do you find the space in a lobby at an LTS session to do those exercises? Are they insane?
I've actually seen that list, but I didn't realize it was before session.

I use no longer made anymore car detailing cotton cloths. Sweet! Better than microfiber, so I stocked up.

Sounds just like a gift with purchase freebie. Microfiber towels probably cost less than $1 wholesale.
