What a surprise when I opened my e-mail yesterday morning to read this message: Dorothy Hamill is now following you on Twitter!
What is Twitter? Click here for a crash course on this mysterious service that everyone seems to be using yet no one seems to understand. (Kind of like Jon and Kate Plus 8 -- we all watch and we don't know why.) Regardless of the hows and whys, I'm thrilled to see Dorothy (see right) on it and I know she is excited to promote her adult skating fantasy camp via Twitter and her website, www.dorothyhamill.com. You too can be part of Dorothy's "tweets" by clicking here.
Dorothy spoke to me briefly about her skating camp for adults back in early April. She was in New York City to support Figure Skating in Harlem's annual benefit called Skating with the Stars (watch my Dorothy Hamill interview) and she had not finalized the details of her camp at that time. Now that her website is up and looking great, there's a ton of information for all the adult skaters out there who want to refine their skating from the best (including Dorothy, JoJo Starbuck, Randy Gardner, Peter Carruthers and others) while enjoying the beautiful island of Nantucket.
The camp runs from September 20 through September 25, and costs about $4,800. The price includes lodging, all figure skating activities and personal instruction, on-site personal trainer, on-site personal concierge, welcome reception, breakfasts, lunches, and group dinners hosted by Dorothy, SkatingCircle.com gift bags and a souvenir DVD of the camp. I'd better start saving up now!
