Peggy Fleming On Why People Should Skate
If you’re a figure skater, here are four ways you can add to your artistic expression:
1. In your competition programs, create a character that inspires you to express the meaning of the program.
2. For ISI competitions, the artistic, spotlight, and couples spotlight events in particular are great places to be creative and act as well as skate. For USFSA, there are artistic events at certain competitions, and you can choose music for your programs that inspires you to be creative.
3. Be creative in setting your weekly, monthly, and yearly goals.
4. Some rinks have artistic skating, improvisation, or choreography classes. These are great classes to attend to enhance your creativity. You could also add extra skating time into the day and improvise to the music that is playing or that you put on. This can also improve your choreographing skills for the future.
Have fun expressing yourself through the sport and art of figure skating! 🙂
