Upcoming JoJo Starbucks Workshop!

Once again, JoJo Starbuck (3-time US National Pairs Skating Champions and twice Olympic competitor, and also the mother of an MIT student) will be joining us to lead a skating workshop on Sunday, October 29 from 11:15am – 12:15pm.

THIS OPPORTUNITY IS LIMITED TO THOSE WHO ARE MEMBERS OF THE MIT FIGURE SKATING CLUB (so if you have not yet paid dues for this year, be sure to do so before October 29).

To be sure that it is a positive experience for each participant, the workshop will be limited to 20 people, so sign up now if you are interested (first come, first serve). If you sign up but then find that you will not be able to participate, please cancel your spot, so that others can have this opportunity. This workshop is not recommended for those who have never skated yet, but if you are comfortable skating forwards, you will get something out of it.

Sign up by sending e-mail to: bonnyk[at]mit.edu. Please provide some information about your skating experience:
  1. Comfortable skating forwards, but little else
  2. Can do crossovers and skate backwards
  3. Can turn on one foot and hold an edge
  4. Can jump and spin (sort of)
  5. Proficient with jumps and spins
Please plan to do your own warm-up before the workshop starts and be on the ice with your skates on by 11:15am.
