Competitions

Performance is required to pass skating skills and what a better way to do this than by earning an award. Competitions are extremely rewarding and valuable experience for each skater’s growth as a skater and performer. Each skater gets a chance to show his or hers improvement. I want each skater to feel confident  with their routines so we like them to stay consistent with their lessons and practices. I have competitions every two to three months. I like the skater to perform at other ice rinks to get more competitive experience. When I do go to these competitions plan on practicing at that ice rink at least a week or two before for preparation purposes. I want your skater to be able to do several types of skating routines. The types range from: technical, which is showing off their skating level skills; spotlights/artistic, which are to show off their creative side; footwork routines showing off their agility on the ice. I edit the correct length of music to fit each individual event and give you your own CD of your skating music.
