Ice Dancing and Ladies Figure Skating Practice - February 21, 2010 at the Pacific Colesium.

This is Keri again, with another guest post.

This morning, I went to another figure skating practice. This time it was Ice Dancing and Ladies programs. I enjoyed my first practice session so much, that I jumped at the chance to see another. This time it was Ice Dancing Original Dance, and Ladies Figure Skating.

When we arrived we were treated to the last two groups of Ice Dancing Pairs. They included all the top teams. We were smarter this time, and actually did a bit of homework beforehand so we knew who the top teams were! As the competition was tonight, the Ice Dancers were all in costume, but like last time, they didn't do complete performances.

It was really exciting to actually watch the performances tonight. It was good to get confirmation that the performances we liked best were actually the best.

Following Ice Dancing, the Ladies took to the ice. We were only able to watch two groups before we were kicked out of the venue, but luckily for us it included the top ranked skater in the world, Kim Yu-Na of Korea.

You'll notice in this photo that off to the right of the frame are a row of cameramen that appeared out of nowhere. The line of cameras followed her every move and moved in unison as she moved. It was really quite strange.
