There's something about putting on a pair of skates, and getting out there and moving like nobody else can. Freedom is a word that comes to mind.
If you're skating on thin ice, you might as well dance!
Society is like a large piece of frozen water; and skating well is the great art of social life.

Growing up as an athlete, I started skating very young. My parents didn't know anything about the sport, so they went with the flow. I had two great coaches who gave great advice and gave guidelines for my parents. My parents let the coaches dictate what was going on on the ice.
