I'm still plugging away in Adult 2, making some progress, but there's a couple of elements my instructor hasn't taught me yet, such as crossovers. (She's waiting until my edges are better, but since I can barely do one-foot moves on my current skates, that's going to be awhile.) Some moves I can do, but not very well. But now she's saying she wants me to sign up for some competition this summer! I don't know the name of it or anything, just that it's in August. I may or may not have my new skates by then, so there's no telling if I'll even be able to participate or not.
My question is, what sort of stuff would someone at my level do in a competition? I mean, I can't do crossovers. I can't do backwards one-foot glides. I can barely manage a two-foot turn on a circle, outside edges on a circle, forward pivots, and forward chasses. I'm working on those, trying to improve, but with my skate-pain problem, it's slow-going. So what can my instructor possibly have in mind for me to do in a competition?
Anyone know if it would it be a program set to music? Or just a demonstration of my skills? I've seen some "skills demonstrations" by little kids, where all they do is skate out, do some swizzles, a snowplow stop, and a backwards wiggle, then take a bow. Is that the kind of thing we're talking about here? Is it normal for adults to do that sort of thing, too?
