Travelling to a different country to teach a Level 1 Program is always a challenge. There are different rules, different ways of living, and different ways of understanding skating. So having an open heart on both sides, teacher and students, is the key to a successful program. This is what I love most about ICP program; so much to learn and so many ways to grow...
