Western Province will be hosting an Ice Dance and Synchronised Skating competition on Tuesday, 03 December 2019 (18:00 – 21:30)

The competition is open to all current SAFSA members and the Ice Dance sections will be based on the skaters current skill level qualification.

The dances that have been chosen for the Ice Dance / Synchro Competition are as follows:

  • 0 – 1 Skating Skills  – Fiesta Tango and Swing Dance
  • 2 – 3 Skating Skills  – Foxtrot and European Waltz
  • 4 – 5 Skating Skills  –  Rocker Foxtrot and Blues 

Each participant will skate both dances for which ever section they have entered.  In the couples sections, they will skate the same dances that were chosen for the solo ice dance.

There are 5 or 6 tunes for each dance –  the last track will be used for the warm up but not to compete with.  Each skater will skate to a different tune, starting from track 1 – 4, skater 5 will skate to tune 1 etc.

SAFSA WP judges will be used to judge the sections – we will be looking for correct timing, correct steps, posture and skating skills. Each dance has a Key step (whether its a Mohawk, Rocker, Choctaw etc)  – this will be checked to see that it is done correctly for all sequences.  The second mark is for the Skating Skills (50%), Timing (30%) and Performance (20%).

All skaters can take part so long as they know the dances for their skating skills level.  There will only be one skater on the ice at time (couples – 1 couple at a time) – they will skate to music, skating either 1 and a half time / twice around the rink – depending on how many sequences they need to do. (We will supply the music as per ISU)
