Ice skating FAQ and introductions for new fans

Recommended Posts

These videos provide quite good explanations on the various elements making up the PCS score.

It's a sizeable collection of videos, but it's interesting because it helps understand what good quality transitions, skating skills, interpretation, etc. look like.

(Now can we send these to the judges...)

A very great posts for new fans who want to study the basic turns and steps, this blog has all the examples for all the steps and the examples are very great http://illyria-and-her-pet.tumblr.com/post/182237416574/figure-skating-stepsturns

Hello! This is my post. And I now have a video version of this to go along with the post and gifs as well. 

 

Difficult Steps/Turns (those that count for levels) for Singles/Pairs: Rocker, Counter, Bracket, Choctaw, Twizzle, Loop

 

Difficult Steps/Turns (those that count for levels) for Ice Dance: Rocker, Counter, Bracket, Choctaw, Twizzle, Outside Mohawk

 

Non-Difficult Steps/Turns (those that don't count for levels): three turn, inside mohawk, toe steps, chasse, change of edge, cross roll, crossed step in front, crossed step behind, slip steps, swing roll, progressive, illusion, crossovers

 

I have examples of all the difficult steps/turns from every entry edge. I also have examples of two of the non-difficult steps/turns from every entry edge (three-turn and inside mohawk).

Thank you very much for this highly informative, useful and very well edited video with all the examples and slow-mos. I hope many people will watch this (and read your post) because it's a very good way to learn about steps and turns.
