" When will Paula be coming back?" This is a question asked daily by skaters, parents and coaches. Paula's seminar was a fantastic catalyst for our skaters, unleashing the skaters expression and movement on the ice. Paula is a master at engaging with all levels and ages of skaters, encouraging the skaters to go beyond their expressive comfort zone, teaching students that music and motion is the connection between artistry, athleticism and their audience.
The Paula Wagener seminar was a great way to kick off our summer skating program. The level of enthusiasm for skating and performing at our rink has skyrocketed. Paula's "Artistry in Motion" was an incredible experience, energizing both coaches and skaters. Skater parents gained a greater appreciation and a new perspective concerning the many facets of what makes a skating performance an art form.
"Thank you, Paula" for providing our skaters with the knowledge and expressive confidence to skate without limitations. "

" Paula Wagener is the professional you strive to find. She has this magical energy about her that will en capture you the second you step into her class, whether on ice or off ice.Paula has the ability to shed any fear or doubt out of the athletes she works with,bringing out the confidence and joy that only movement to music can inspire, bringing out light, emotion and the extraordinary in everyone. Paula's attention to detail and engagement to melody and rhythm, every extension and fingertip, choreography, and feeling every beat of the music is unmatched. Every time my athletes work with her, they feel inspired, empowered, and come to me asking for more "Paula-time".
My athletes and Coaching staff is grateful for every second of PAULA.We are so proud and privileged to have the chance to work with her,
and can not recommend experiencing her love of improving artistry, expression, and finesse in figure skating enough.
