    Hello Everyone!

    Hi there!

    I'm Joëlle, 15 years old and I live in Holland.. I'm here becouse there's no such thing as a dutch skaters forum and I love to talk about figure skating..
    And it will improve my english :P

    I skate with ''Kids on Ice'' a dutch show, kind a like Holiday on ice, but then with children in the age of 3 to 20.. We are the biggest european skating show and every year we have several shows.

    I hope you all can understand me good enough, and sorry if my english is very bad!

    Love, Joëlle

    Hi, Joelle. Welcome to Golden Skate. Post often, post long! Your English is super.

    OK, I'll give it a try:

    Welkom!

    How was that?

    You must be a very good skater to be in the touring ice show! How long have you been skating? What level are you at?

    hehe thnx!

    Well thats the whole point, at our ,how do you call it, show I guess, you arent training on the jumps and stuff but on performance and attitude on the ice..

    i'm now skating 7 years, but we only train in the winter, (oct. till april)

    Ik call only jump single jumps, but I can't tell you witch one becouse I guess there not the same.. the dutch names are:

    Kadet, salchow, oiler, spot, flip, rithberger

    we also don't work on levels, becouwe we are just training for shows and stuff.. This is my first year in the selection and showgroup what means I'm gonna travel around our little counrty and belgium.. And maybe in about 2 years our (I don't know the word).. Group I guess will pick 50 kids to go to china to give there a couple off shows..

    But the chance i'm gonna be in hat group will be little.

    My story is getting way to long.. For photo's and stuf you can watch www.kidsonice.nl

    I'm going to bed know, here in holland its 10:42 in the evening!

    Goodnight, and for you good afternoon!

    and another post with a couple off nice pictures..







    So I hope now you have an idea of what kind a show it is.. It is very professional with the costumes as you can see, and decors are very nice every time.. I don't have a photo of our decor.. But you can think of things like; Boats with lights and stuff, theatres with balkonees, big caves, ice lands etc. etc.

    Now, I'm really going to sleep :P bye!

    Welcome to GS, Joelle.

    It looks like you are in a splendid group of skaters. What nice memories you'll have! I hope you enjoy your time there and update us often on how you and the group are doing.

    I sing in a choral group that performs several times a year and I know how much I enjoy working and performing with this excellent group. I know how lucky I am to have been accepted into this group and while I sometimes wonder HOW I managed to get in, I am always happy that I did get in and work hard to learn my music and perform to the best of my ability. So, my best advice to you -- ENJOY!

    And don't forget that we want to hear from you often!

    a kind of magic - queen
    a song from Mariah Carey don't knwo the titel

    and a couple more I don't know yet, we didn't started those !

    I train official 3 times a week 2 hours per training, but in the middle of the season it will become 5 tot 6 times a week..

    That's it for tonight.. Talk to you tomorrow probably while you are sleeping

    Hi Dutch Skater! Welcome!

    My coach is Dutch. She went to Holland over the summer and said she saw the skating museum there. And she was in it! Maybe we'll see you there, too."

    Anyway, i just wanted to say "hi." I'm American, but my Mom was also Dutch.
