STARSkate

Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition – this is what STARSkate is all about!

The STARSkate program consists of figure skating skills in four areas – Skating Skills, Ice Dance, Free Skate and Interpretive. The Skating Skills program solidifies the basic fundamentals of skating – edge quality, control, power and speed. The Ice Dance program consists of seven levels of tests and teaches timing, musicality and rhythm interpretation.

Free Skating consists of the execution of jumps, spins, footwork and stroking, either in isolation or performed in sequence to music. An Interpretive program provides skaters with the opportunity to explore the performance aspect of skating without focusing on technical elements.

STARSkate participants love to compete and skaters have the opportunity to participate in several competitions each year.
