Learn to Skate USA, the premier source for all things figure skating, has teamed up with Rink Tank Interactive to bring you the 'Learn to Skate USA Skate Coach' app series for iOS.
The Skate Coach app series was designed to help skaters, parents, instructors and officials understand the standards set for the Basic Skills Program through the use of high definition video examples.
The Dance 1-6 app focuses on the components of ice dancing and reviews the basic edges & turns, all while skating to music. Skaters will complete the first 6 compulsory dances, which can then be tested solo or with a partner.
Whether in the comfort of your own home, traveling to the rink or during practice, you will always have a Skate Coach in your pocket!
DISCLAIMER: Participating in ice skating has inherent risks, but with good technique and sound equipment these risks are mitigated. While the Skate Coach app series provides examples of skills performed correctly, they are NOT meant to supplement professional skating instruction! Improper use of the Skate Coach apps could result in bodily harm! Please do not attempt these maneuvers while holding an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad on the ice. Learn to Skate USA and Rink Tank Interactive are not responsible for injuries resulting from (direct or indirect) use of these apps.
Welcome to the Learn to Skate USA update of the Skate Coach Dance 1-6 app! We have added new versions of the ice dance patterns that don't lose quality when scaling, and have done an all around redesign to make the text easier to read as well. We think you'll love it!
Ratings and Reviews
These apps are great. Chock full of useful information and video samples. Easy to use if you're a coach or student. They also make great reference for the casual skater. Cant wait to see what comes next.
This is helpful to review steps and patterns. It links the Usfsa rule book pattern and also the music. The app has video of the dance to help learn steps. This is helpful for group instructors wanting to introduce dance to group lessons. It is helpful in taking PSA ratings exams.
This app is easy to use and demonstrates proper technique for the dances. The skater in the videos does a wonderful job.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
