    Artistic Program Question

    Long story short, I did competitive skating (up to the junior level) for 12 years. I quit 3 years ago, but wanted to get back into doing a showcase event/artistic program competition. I considering on signing up for a competition where I'd be competing in an Artistic 6 level, but since I'm in college, I'll be preparing for this competition mostly by myself.

    Just two questions before I decide to register, since it's been over 3 years since my last competition, and 10 years since I last competed in an artistic event.

    1. Do I need jumps at all to compete? I don't jump anymore, and would prefer to not start practicing them.
    2. is there anywhere where I can find rules/regulations/requirements for an artistic program? Besides the 2:40 minute rule.

    Thanks everyone! Clearly I'm quite out of the competition circle.

    There should be rules on the national showcase section of usfs. Good interpretive programs don't necessarily have jumps but a few singles probably wouldn't stress you out much. Good luck
