Rock ‘N’ Roll Skating Championships and Skate TV

Like the name says, skaters performed to rock ‘n’ roll music at this competition in technical and artistic programs. A panel of five celebrity judges, ranging from actors to gymnastics coaches, scored the skaters in the men’s and ladies disciplines. Pairs competed only at the 1996 competition.
