Yuri!!! on ICE has successfully reignited an active interest in figure skating much in the same way as Michael Christian Martinez’s participation in the 2014 Winter Olympics did. Fans have been flocking to local rinks in order to follow the footsteps – or glides, as it were – of their idols Yuri and Victor, and while it hasn’t been the easiest thing to do, a good number have decided to rise up to the challenge of formal lessons. Wow, amazing!
If you’re seriously interested in getting yourself a pair of skates, your best bet is to give In2Skating a call and a visit. In2Skating carries a wide range of skate brands and accessories. They’ll have everything you need for the first season of You!!! on ICE.
The two branches of In2Skating are conveniently located near two of the metro’s major rinks, so after you pick up your skates, skate bag, blade guard, and soakers – the very basic arsenal of any aspiring figure skater – you can get right on the ice and break those babies in!
