The music must be chosen in accordance with the rhythm of the Pattern Dance. The chosen music may also be a tune from ISU Ice Dance music. In this
case only tunes 1 to 5 can be chosen and the music must be recorded on the skaters’ own disc. A violation of tempo specifications will result in a 1.0 point
deduction by the Referee.
Vocal music may be used. For the application of Rule 708 paragraph 1.d) with music provided by the couple, it is specified that the start of the first step of
the dance must be on beat 1 of a measure (unless otherwise specified in the description of the dance). Rule 707, paragraph 4 provides that the Referee may
announce the approximate location at which the Pattern Dances must be started.
All Pattern Dances shall be started so that the steps of the first side of the pattern are skated in front of the Judges unless otherwise specified by the Referee.
If the Referee changes the side to start, the change must be announced at the time of the first draw for starting order.
One of the pattern dances will have music chosen by the skaters.
Tempo specification for the Pattern Dance music is as follows:
 (Bronze) Foxtrot: 25 measures of 4 beats per minute or 100 beats per minute, plus or minus 2 beats per minute
 (Silver): Paso Doble - 56 measures of 2 beats per minute or 112 beats per minute, plus or minus 2 beats per minute
 (Gold): Westminster Waltz - 54 measures of 3 beats per minute or 162 beats per minute, plus or minus 2 beats per minute

The Tempo throughout the required Sequences must be constant and in accordance with the required Tempo of the Pattern Dance (see ISU Handbook Ice Dance 2003)
plus or minus 2 beats per minute. The couple shall furnish competition music in accordance with Rule 343, paragraph 1. The other Pattern Dance in each category
will use ISU Ice Dance music that will be provided by the organizers.
The Pattern Dances will be judged without Key Points.

Short Dance 

General Regulations: See: ISU Communication No. 2076, 2086 and 2108 Ice Dance Requirements for Technical Rules Season 2017 / 2018.
All Key Points and Key Points Features for Pattern Elements are described in this Communication. This competition will follow the requirements for the
Junior Short Dance described in ISU Communication 2076.
Note: there are some adjustments for the Adult Competition.
The rhythms for the Short Dance in the season 2017/18 are as follows: Cha Cha plus any number of the following rhythms: Rhumba, Samba, Mambo,
Meringe, Salsa, Bachata and any closely related Latin American rhythm.
Masters
Couples entering this category will compete against other Masters Ice Dancers. (Recommended for gold level or above ice dancers.)
The technical requirements are the same as for the category “Short Dance”.
Adult
Couples entering this category will compete against others at the Adult Short Dance level. (Recommended for silver level ice dancers.)
The technical requirements are the same as for the category “Short Dance".

Required Short Dance Elements
Pattern Dance: One sequences of the Cha Cha Congelado. Each section of the Cha Cha Congelado must be skated one after the other. Section 1(steps #1-17)
followed by Section 2 (steps #18-38) with Step #1 skated on the judges opposite side.

The Pattern Dance Elements must be skated on the Cha Cha Rhythm. The tempo of music throughout the Pattern Dance Elements must be
constant and in accordance with the required Tempo of the Pattern Dance Element Cha Cha: i.e. 29 measures of 4 beats or 116 beats per
minute, plus or minus 2 beats per minute.

One (1) Short Dance lift (maximum 7 seconds) is required. In addition, one (1) Transitional Dance Lift (up to 7 seconds), but no more,
performed optionally after the required Dance Lift, is permitted.
One (1) Not Touching Midline Step Sequence OR Not Touching Circular Step Sequence OR Not Touching Diagonal Step Sequence:
 This step sequence must be skated on one of the other rhythms and not the Cha Cha rhythm.
One (1) Set of Sequential Twizzles.
Elements should be integrated into the composition of the dance so the concept and choreography must produce the feeling of a unified dance.
The Dance Spin is not a Required Element. Nevertheless, a spinning movement skated by the couple together in any hold around a common axis
on one foot (or two feet) with any number of rotations is permitted. A couple may choose to use this movement as part of their choreography.
The Technical Panel will ignore these movements and the Judges will not consider these movements as one of the permitted stops.
Specifications:
 The description, chart and diagrams of the Pattern Dances are included in the ISU Handbook Ice Dance 2003.
 The concept and choreography must produce the feeling of a unified dance. The Pattern Dance elements may be skated anywhere in the
Short Dance and should be integrated into the composition of the dance – there should not be the feeling that the rhythms are just put together
without thought of how they fit together.
Note: as per ISU Communication 1860, paragraph 3, a Pattern Dance Element not started on the required beat must be penalized by Judges.
Music for the entire Short Dance (including music for specified Pattern Dance Elements) is provided by the couple.
VOCAL MUSIC MAY BE USED. The maximum time is 2 minutes and 50 seconds, but may be less.
The points for each Program component are multiplied by a factor of 0,8 (Rule 353, paragraph 1.m).
The warm-up duration is five (5) minutes.

Artistic Skating

General Regulations:
The artistic events consist of free skating and pair free skating programs judged only on the basis of the Program Components:
 Skating skills
 Transitions
 Performance
 Composition
 Interpretation/Timing
See ISU Special Regulations and Technical Rules 2016, Singles & Pair Skating, Rule 504, paragraph 3 for a detailed description of Program Components.
The respective Rules can be found on the ISU website.
There will be no technical panel and no technical mark given. The points for each Program Component are multiplied by a factor of 1.0
The artistic program consists of a variety of skating moves selected for their value in demonstrating skating ability and enhancing the skater’s interpretation of the music.
Skaters will be judged on their ability to interpret the music and develop a theme through their skating. Credit for technical elements is based solely on the ability of
such movements to enhance the chosen theme and support the music. Credit will not be given for their technical difficulty.
The program must be developed through skating skill and quality rather than through non-skating actions such as sliding on one knee or excessive use of toe steps,
which should be used only to reflect the character of the program and to underline the rhythm and nuances of the chosen music. The skater/pair must not remain in one
place for more than five (5) seconds.
Any element exceeding the maximum number as set forth below will be judged as an illegal element (1.0 deduction). If there is no jump or no spin element included or
only a jump and no spin or vice versa a deduction for a “missing element” of 1.0 will be made. The Referee is responsible for such deductions.
Clothing and make-up must be modest, dignified and appropriate for athletic competition – not garish or theatrical in design. Clothing may, however, reflect the character
of the music chosen. Clothing must not give the effect of excessive nudity. The theme of the program should be recognizable from the skating movements and
choreography – regardless of what the skater is wearing.
Props and accessories may not be used in any part of the artistic programs. Any item that is held in the hand or removed during the performance is considered a prop.
Thus, for example, a hat worn throughout the program is not considered to be a prop, but if it is intentionally removed during the performance it is considered a prop.
Objects on the ice, thrown in the audience, placed on the boards or on the judges table are not permitted. Costumes that contain particles that may mar or leave anything
on the ice surface (feathers, boas, excessive beading) are considered unsafe and are not permitted.
The deduction for inappropriate clothing or make-up props and accessories (1.0) will be determined by a majority of the judges and the referee.
Illegal elements:
 Somersault type jumps
 Lying on the ice and prolonged and/or stationary kneeling on both knees on the ice
The warm-up duration is five (5) minutes for all artistic free skating events.

Artistic Single Skating

Competitions will be held at the Masters, Gold, Silver and Bronze levels.
