San Diego Figure Skating Communications
Dance Steps & Turns Workshop -
Topics & Lesson Plans

     The goal of these workshops is to demonstrate the Dance Steps/Turns and Connecting Elements that provide the basic connecting structure required in a well balanced Free Skating, Pair or Free Dance USFSA in both test and competition programs.

     These workshops can serve as a guide for coaches to incorporate these steps and turns into free skating programs, starting with pre-preliminary tests and no test competition events.
