Skating Programs and Protocol
For the 2017 competitive season, I will be skating two different programs.
Adult Freeskate 6.0 – This is my technical program where I will be equally judged for my elements (jumps, spins, footwork) and my skating skills which include performance and choreography. I will be skating to an electronic instrumental version of Mike Posner’s 2016 hit “I Took a Pill in Ibiza.”
Adult Showcase Light Entertainment – Though strong skating skills need to be present, this program is all about entertaining and connecting with the judges and audiences with a program that will delight them. I will be skating to the Hawaiian Christmas classic “Mele Kalikimaka” performed by Kingdom Heirs. Since I will be “playing to the judges” it is best to sit behind the judges’ table if seating is available.
I love to have friends and family attend and support me at competitions. I will not be be able to socialize prior to going on the ice since I need to be focused without distractions, but I can visit in the lobby of the event after my group skates as long as you want to.
Finally, when you are ready to enter the skating arena, you should always wait at the door or entryway if a skater is currently performing. After they are done and start their bows, you may enter.
