Figure skater achieves gold
Powell River figure skater Emma Piniewski, 16, recently passed her gold-level interpretive test with Powell River Skating Club. It is the first gold test completed in Powell River in a number of years, according to the club’s new president CaroleAnn Leishman.
Gold tests are the highest achievements in each category in figure skating. The interpretive test is judged on theme, motivation, design, dynamics, gesture, style and composition.
The interpretive program provides an avenue where skaters can develop their ability to interpret music.
