National Showcase: A Competition in Theatrical Skating

Showcase fuses artistic creativity with figure skating for single skaters, duets, small ensembles of three to seven and production numbers of eight to thirty. National Showcase offers the categories of light entertainment, dramatic entertainment and interpretative to singles skaters. Many who have observed National Showcase have remarked on the uniqueness and variety of the programs.

Singles participating in light or dramatic entertainment programs perform under spotlights as do duets. All other events are performed under full house lighting.

National Showcase is truly a festival of inspiration and skaters who qualify are strongly encouraged to participate. The top four skaters within a Showcase event qualify for National Showcase. This includes nonqualifying competitions with showcase events or all-showcase competitions. For more information on Showcase competition Guidelines, please refer to the Nonqualifying Showcase Guidelines and National Showcase Guidelines documents listed in the Resource Box.
