Skills & Drills – Learn The Downtown

Skills & Drills - Learn The Downtown 1

Class Description: Come with me, Elaine for 1 hour of instruction on how to learn to do “the Downtown”.  A foundational combination of movements which includes crossing over, and behind.  Understand the count of this movement, how to loosen up and have rhythm.  Off of The Downtown branches “variations”.  The Variations will not be included in this class as they themselves require more skills and time to maneuver and stay in control.  The Downtown can be seen typically in any skating area, and performed by 1 or more people, sometimes filling up the whole centre space of the rink floor.  Although there are countless variations, learning the foundation “The Downtown” is one of the most recognized, and attracts the roller skating community like bees to the hive.
