I recently have decided that I would like to begin USFSA skating, specifically with a concentration in Ice dance/ moves. (I love footwork /learning dance patterns) I'm curious about the best way to find a coach ( I only know ISI/jump coaches and skaters) as well as how many tests I can expect to get through relatively quickly if I have basic skating skills and am landing doubles (doing brackets, chases etc) This is Including mif and dance.
Also how do you test free dances if you don't have a partner? Does a 14 year old girl with strong footwork/edges/skating skills stand a chance of finding a partner living near a large city (in the future). Just looking for basic info.
