Bend your knees, keep your back straight, arms out and then brush the ice to the side. Brush the ice to the side. You can do it with the other foot also, brush, brush. Now when we stop though, we have to keep the knees together and then twist the ankle into the brush. One, Two, Three, bend the knees, twist the ankle and the same thing with the other foot. One, Two, Three, bend the knees, twist the ankle. We’ll be right back.
