Are you going?  I am having an ongoing blade position issue that is really messing with my RO edges but if I can get it corrected I will probably do it!
Working towards Bronze MITF and Pre-Bronze Freestyle

I'm going.  I figure $200 for 5 hours of instruction (+lunch) is more expensive than regular group classes, but cheaper than 5 hours of private lessons.  And it should be a lot of fun!

Be sure to post about your experience at this camp.  I read about skate camps with well known skaters or coaches and wonder if a guy at my low level of skating expertise would benefit from such high powered instruction.  The fact that this one only eats up one day makes it attractive for skaters who don't have skating spouses and feel a little guilty about lavishing a week or more of limited vacation time on themselves.  And your math is right on:  most coaches charge at least a buck a minute for private lessons so if you're getting 300 minutes for $200 smackers it's a deal--and then there's lunch!  Be sure to tell us about lunch.

Jo Jo does a regular weekly skating exercise class for adults that has skaters who are quite limited in skills in it, as well as more advanced skaters. She seems to keep all of them moving and busy, so I'm thinking that this camp may actually be something that might work for skaters who aren't advanced, whereas some other seminars and etc. that I've been to were too "woah omg wtf" to be useful for adults who are lowish level.

I haven't taken with her, but she teaches this class on the other rink while I'm in my lesson. She seems to be good at adapting to each level, and she's very skilled with adults, and the adults that I know who are in her class really like it.

I admit, I'm tempted by this one. I'm more scared of the ballet. ;)

I'm in her weekly class and that assessment is spot on.   :)
