This DVD is not good. Heather Luscombe's technique is awful. I've been a figure skater for 20 years, and I thought to check out this DVD from the library as a teaching resource for my students. Thank goodness I didn't need to buy it. I was extremely disappointed. Ms. Luscombe doesn't even stand correctly on her skates. She's knock-kneed with her ankles leaning in towards each other. When she performs the movements, she's shaky and unstable. The first Mohawk shown on the DVD, she has to put her foot down after she completes the movement or she's clearly going to fall.
I would expect the instructor on a DVD like this to be a proficient skater, with good form and technique, and able to demonstrate movements without wobbling around.

Parents, skaters and instructors; Skip this one. You can find better videos on YouTube.

Great for begginers. My beginning skater learned a lot. She is not advanced so does not need expensive lessons this helped her a lot with the basic of the basics.

Verified Purchase
I would give this no stars if that was an option! I bought this in the hopes that it would help my husband with some of the basics; I personally am Freestyle 1-2. What a disappointment! The girl demonstrating the elements could not even do crossovers on her own, let alone the more advanced elements. It was s joke. The instructor did not perform any of the elements; she did not explain anything, didn't mention most common mistakes, and made no attempt to correct the skater "demonstrating" the elements. I had to turn it off after 10 minutes; couldn't stand watching it any more. Needless to say, the DVD is now history. Do NOT buy.
