ISS Adult Master Class

Posted: 10th October 2011

Skaters from far and wide recently took part in the first ISS adult master class run by Yuri Bureiko, and proved to be an enormous success. The class was a taster for adults, which followed the effective master class format that Yuri runs on a regular basis.

Skaters enjoyed a productive morning, starting with 2 hours of ice time, it was a valuable intensive workshop including edge work, spins and jump techniques. Yuri and his coaching team from ISS Milton Keynes worked closely with the skaters and provided huge encouragement to all the levels that took part, the ice session was then followed by an off ice session, and then a dance class to finish off a great morning.

The master class was organized by Jennie Krupinski who is an adult skater at ISS Milton Keynes. Jennie approached Yuri to run a specific class for adults as she had seen what great benefits the master classes provided skaters. Jennie went on to say:

“ISS has always supported me and my individual development, I wanted to share the opportunities that ISS provides me with other adult skaters, having taken part in many competitions myself I wanted to host an event on my doorstep! Its an amazing opportunity to be able to have the knowledge and experience of Yuri, so I was delighted to not only skate with him myself but give the opportunity to other adult skaters – it was a fantastic morning and gave us all a great buzz!”

ISS hopes to build on this success and are planning to support more adult events and run another camp soon, which will be for a longer period. ISS coaches and skaters that took part had a great time, here's what a few had to say:

“Thanks ever so much for all your hard work keeping us all informed, and thanks to everyone at ISS for a good fun event, I seriously enjoyed it, let me know about the next one!”
Francis Fuchs

“It was an absolutely brilliant day. I learnt so much in respect of where by balance sits and also that I’m rushing everything!My thanks to you for organising it and for the patience of all the coaches.”
Nicola Moran

“Just wanted to say thanks very much for organising the Master Class - it was really good and I enjoyed it a lot! Hope there will be more in the future”
Caroline Cutmore
