Coaches; dedication and hard work
Our resident, Gold Ice Dance coaches; Duncan Lenard and Lynn Burton-Lenard currently teach at Silverblades Solihull Ice Rink. Their dedication, inspiration and hard work shines through the pupils they coach.
Their pupils have the benefit of Dunc and Lynn’s unique skills and experience. The pair bring extensive knowledge and training to bear particularly when pupils have rink test days.
On June 13th 2016, Silverblades Solihull hosted the Rink Test day for pupils ready to advance to their next level in tests.
Alanis Lilie Palmer; Level 9 field moves, Level 2 Pattern Dance (PD) (Dutch Waltz/Canasta Tango) and Levels 1, 2 & 3 Free Dance (FD) Emily Workman, Level 4 Free Dance (FD). Stephen Hollins; Level 7 Pattern Dance, American Waltz and 22 Step. All passed their respective levels except on this occasion Lucie Schiller.
The members of Solihull Dancing Blades (incorporating Mercian Ice Dance Club) know the importance of excellent coaching. All members and pupils taking their tests thank their coaches for supporting them in what can be a stressful time.
Lynn and Dunc would like to congratulate their pupils who enjoy ice dance yet take seriously the importance of individual achievement. The couple would like their pupils to obtain their best standards possible. They also hope in the future to coach champions at Silverblades Solihull and currently have pupils working towards the Solo Dance Championships and the Adult Championships.
