Is previous skating experience required to join Competitive Ice Dance?
Yes. For Junior Dance: Skaters must pass all their preliminary dances, be between the ages 7 and 10-years, and interested in pursuing competitive dance. For Competitive Dance: Skaters must be part of a dance team that is pursuing competitive ice dance or preparing to compete in "Gold or Open Solo Short Dance," they must also be registered on a minimum of 2 other STARSkate sessions.
