It’s always so mesmerizing to watch pro ice skaters in action. The precision, grace, and coordination they demonstrate as they glide about the ring is just impressive. And as your eyes follow their every move, you can’t help but wonder just how much work and dedication goes into the craft. Imagine how many hours of practice ice skaters commit to and how disciplined they are with their fitness routines.
Ice skating may not be easy but it’s nice to know that the sport isn’t limited to just adults. The young ones can get in on the action as well!
And boy are they good.
Figure skaters as young as five years old already have what it takes to stun crowds with captivating routines.
This is why the young ones should never be underestimated. They’re fast learners, they adapt easily, and their spirits are just too pure and light!
No wonder their performances always seem more magical compared to those of the grown-ups.
To prove just how amazing children can be on the ice, here’s Veronica Zhilina of Moscow, Russia.
At the tender age of ten, Veronica can already skate at the level of someone thrice her age.
Large crowds do not faze her. In fact, they seem to inspire her to push further. Her ice skating routine to the song “Hallelujah” will leave you in awe.
Standing in the middle of the icy surface, Veronica remains quietly in position as she waits for the music to play. When it does, she shows the audience what she’s holding in her hands – a light, which she raises to the sky gracefully. What she does next will reveal a beautiful part of her choreography.
As she spins around and shows the light to the crowd behind her, they respond by shining their lights back, creating a stunning effect in the dark arena.
A splendid way to start off a heartfelt routine, that’s for sure.
She begins to move by gliding and spinning smoothly across the ice, exhibiting notable balance and flexibility with each step.
The lithe ice skater redefines poetry in motion each time she raises her arms or legs high, and when she pulls off vertical splits as she skates on one foot. Her early moves have the crowd applauding and anticipating more, and Veronica knows just how to keep them captivated.
Like a fairy taking off, the young ice skater leaps and spins around as if it were the most natural thing in the world. Then she lands gracefully back on the ice, light on her feet.
Transitioning from one step to another, Veronica did more than just perform to a heartfelt song. She elevated the song’s message through her rhythm and poise, as well as the visuals she incorporated into her routine. She definitely stole hearts judging by the crowd’s reaction.
And because the young skater knows how to put on a magnificent show, she ended just as beautifully as she began, picking up the light and spinning around with it.
Gradually, she comes out of the tight spin and once more lifts her arms to raise the light into the air, concluding a performance like no other.
You’ll love this young girl’s talent and grace as she moves across the ice. Press play and prepare to be mesmerized.
