Solo dance is an opportunity for skaters to ice dance on their own without a partner and is open to skaters of all ages and ice dance levels, from preliminary to gold and international. Solo dance events – both pattern and free dances – are available at nonqualifying competitions across the country.
Solo dance events include:
- Solo Pattern Dance
- Shadow Dance (two skaters skate a pattern dance side by side)
- Combined Dance (one solo pattern dance and one solo free dance)
Solo Dance Series
Created to be a fun, nationwide competitive program, the solo dance series allows skaters to expand their competitive opportunities and encourages those new to ice dancing to give it a try. Skaters register for the series online before April 1, 2020.
The 2020 Solo Dance Series will run March to August 2020 and end with the National Solo Dance Final, held Sept. 10-13, 2020 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Log in to the Members Only site (Select Skating Opportunities then Solo Dance) to find technical updates and more information on solo dance.
