I was slightly hesitant to do the Intro to Aerials class because of the recent pandemic. However, everything was disinfected thoroughly and very organized. The class itself was fantastic. I had stopped figure skating a year back because of a discouraging coach and an injury. I was nervous because I was always harshly scolded whenever I messed up, but Ms. Luna was very kind and patient with me. She made me feel less self-conscious and encouraged me and the other student throughout the class. I would've definitely regretted it if I didn't attend the class!
