Ok, so, competitions, how do they work? Ratings, catagories, can you practice before, how are you judged, favorite competition you have been in, and generally, what is a competition? (don't mind me, in just really curious )
FYI THIS IS A VERY BASIC WATERED DOWN VERSION BUT BASICALLY
We go by points. You get points for what you do, and how well you do it. Say I️ attempt a jump, but fall. They deduct a fall from how much the original jump was worth.
In ISI (my ‘federation’ so to speak) there’s too many to list, so here’s what I’m competing! And what they’re about!
Solo Pattern Dance (Fourteen step, and American Waltz) ((its a pattern dance everyone does the same thing. No jumps, no spins. ))
Light entertainment spotlight (you are separated by age and level. The ONLY thing that matters, is being entertaining! Judges probably won’t take points off for mistakes and don’t care about what your program is made of, as long as they like your performance)
Silver Free Dance
Footwork, basically. Picky footwork, with more requirements than an actually /Footwork/ program (thats also a thing ) and I’m required to do 1 spin and twizzles. (Short spins, don’t make me explain a twizzlendhshauaj)
can you practice before
Yes, depending on the level, and how many skaters are in the warmup, you get a 2-8 minute warmup! I will probably get no less than 5 since I’m a higher level, but there’s not many in my events so I️ probably won’t get 8.
how are you judged,
I hope I️ explained ,,,
favorite competition you have been in,
Everyone loves going to Miami / Oxford university (not Florida) they have a great facility! But I’m in love with the Ice Chalet in Knoxville ☺️
and generally, what is a competition?
Ya girls get together, caked with makeup, high on hairspray, and try to do cool things on knife shoes while shit talking each other in the lockerooms
And that’s about all
(don’t mind me, in just really curious )
Ay I️ love talking about skating ur all good fam
