IIRC, she started improving edge when she was with TT. TT had commented (read in one of her interview from FSU) that before Sasha came to her, her skating is not in the sense of true skating, it's one gymastic move after another on ice wiht shallow edges. She had worked with Sasha on overall skating, edges, flows, etc. It did show in her skating at 2003 season. But, IMO, TT's jam packed CoP friendly programs the next season made it difficult to see the obviouse flow and edges improving in Sasha's programs. It was until Robin stripped the SwanLake to almost bear bone that Sasha's improving on edge and flows was shown so obviousely....It was TT laid the foundation of improvement. IMO.Originally Posted by nymkfan51
And besides edges and stroking those things took time to improving....Her edge improving was so obvious to those who wittnessed her skating in person before she left Cal for TT and first back to Cal with John N....So I've heard.
