Today, I, for the first time, got to see Toller's skating to his 1975 short program Strauss's Graduation Ball-March (one of my favorite "skating" music). All I can say is that I felt like slapping myself for having waited all these years before finally getting to know such an amazing skater and his skating.
I felt chills watching those big moves and daring stroking, all done with such regal elegance. It was skated with musicality that I could have only dreamed of. Toller Cranston skated like a king (or shalI say, a god?). Now that's a tape for skaters who desire to learn to look totally elegant without appearing feminine at all. Dick was getting quite excited and gushed all over him, and I decided that I wanted to hear yet even more gushing. So please do!
