Artistic – The focus of the Artistic discipline is the development of program components, musical movement and creativity. Artistic combines skating aspects such as turns, edges and field moves, with creative spins and the ability to project emotion and artistry. The aspects developed through Artistic assessments benefit every discipline in skating.
Please note, skaters need a strong foundation of basic skating skills, edges and turns, spins and field moves for the entry level of Artistic (Star 5). Skaters must have completed Star 4 Skills prior to entering Star 5 Artistic.
There are four Artistic program assessments in the Star 1 – Gold structure: Star 5, Star 7, Star 9 and Gold
All Artistic programs offer assessment in two main areas:
- Required Content
- Program Components
STAR 1-5 testing by coach
Senior Bronze to Gold tests are evaluated by Skate Canada trained Evaluators.
