This wasn't my first time but it's still nerve-wracking every time 😱 Dancing in public was never my thing (gee, I could only make a step or two) but I guess, doing what embarrasses me made me put aside that shyness, grab the courage and somehow did it (I'm still bad at it, tho!) 😋💃
p.s. Rocked this look with Mary Kay At Play Matte Lip Color in True Red 💋💄 thanks to Ms. @migzlhaine
The 3rd day of practice/training.

The rhythm dance I edited for @oliviasmartx and @adriandiazbronchud might sound straightforward, but it’s actually a bit like the Terminator - traditional on the surface but highly technological underneath! As you can see, there are a number of edits and some sections of the piece are in a different order, plus there are nine tracks of sampled percussion and well over 150 changes to the tempo and timing. Why did we go to all that trouble? Well, there’s a reason you’ve never heard anyone doing an #icedance#tango to this piece before, namely that in its standard form there’s no underlying beat, the tempo is not remotely consistent, and it breaks just about every ISU rule there is! So all this work and technological wizardry that you CAN’T EVEN HEAR 😂😂😂😑 was needed just to turn the piece into a legal rhythm dance! Another thing you can’t see is the mastering chain, where I’m using many more processors than usual (including plugins by @izotopeinc @oeksound @valhalladsp @ikmultimedia @meldaproduction_official and more) to turn a decades-old low-budget tango recording into something that will punch above its weight in 2018 in an ice rink. It took a LOT of work to make this one sound good, but by golly, when Olivia and Adrian skate to it, it WORKS. 💃🕺🔥 Watch out for it on Saturday at #finlandiatrophy2018 ! #rhythmdance#icedancers#teamEspana#SmartDiaz#TeamTSMG#musiceditor#icedancemusic#finlandiatrophy#specialdeliveryoftangoflavouredwhupasscomingyourway
Japanese ice dance skaters Misato and Rikako perform the spine twist with the fitness circle. Finding those deep abs, obliques, transverse while concentrating on the stability on their sit bones. Lots to think about!
Second pilates session for Misato and Rikako of Japan. Both these talented ladies and ice dancers are eager to learn and are such a treat to teach. I love that they want to do well and learn to be better pilates students and integrate it to their craft on the ice. It makes my job all that more pleasurable. 😊 Thanks ladies :) See you next week!
•Favorite ice dance team?
Honestly one of my favorite entrances ever 😭 and the music was on point 👌🏻! I can’t wait to see more from this team, they have so much potential.
Sorry for being all absent. I had a college fair this weekend which was great and then some other stuff but ya I’m back and better so I’m excited to keep sharing these amazing skaters’ talent!
