Connecting Elements

      The goal of this workshop is to provide skaters with the confidence and ability to connect their "tricks" with steps, turns, and other elements in a continuous flow of moves that express the various moods that composers strive to convey in their musical scores.

      It is not the intention of the workshop to promote mechanical head, arm, hand, leg, and body positions that are not providing the supporting construction to show off the skaters required technical elements.  It is our goal to provide a supportive and positive environment to encourage skaters to develop their technical skills while acquiring presentation/ artistic abilities -
