Ice Dance Weekend FAQ

It's an on-ice seminar geared toward skaters participating in the US Figure Skating National Solo Dance Series.  The seminar will be 2-hours on-ice conducted by several ice dance coaches with extensive solo ice dance experience.  The seminar will focus on tips and techniques useful for excelling in the National Solo Ice Dance Series.

We welcome skaters of all dance levels and ages. We mean it!

Did you pass all your gold dances and wish you could skate them again? We've got you covered.

Are you just starting dance? That's cool too!

The BAID Solo Ice Dance Seminar is open to all ice dancers and anyone who simply loves the sport, but is geared to those participating in the US Figure Skating National Solo Ice Dance Series. U.S. Figure Skating membership is not required to participate.

You can also wear whatever you like appropriate for skating on ice. 

Most Sunday mornings, BAID members are found skating at a rink sponsored Social Ice Dance Session at Solar4America San Jose.  A called dance list that goes through most Pattern Dances is played during the session. This session is open to all levels and types of ice dancers.  Dance with a variety of partners or skate solo or as a flock of skaters.  Don't be shy about asking others to a dance.  If you don't want to dance, suggest another easier dance with that person.  Watch out for the beginner skaters as they have less ability to control their moves and stop suddenly.  There is no jumping and dance spins allowed only if session is not crowded.
