Solo Dance Rules and Resources

Below is technical information regarding solo dance.

The 2024 National Solo Dance Final dates and location have been announced and are as follows:

Wesley Chapel, Florida - September 12-15, 2024

Most Recent Updates

Important Clarification (May 13, 2024): For the Tango Variation Dance, the Rule states the skater must do A Steps which would normally include a 3 turn at the end of the pattern prior to doing the Variation, but the pattern shows the new A Steps used when two sequences are done so a skater can transition into the B Steps. Since we didn't notice these conflicting Rules until after the season started, we will accept either the A Steps with the 3 turn or without prior to starting the Variation sequence.
