Music is an integral part of figure skating. Music is essential for warm up, stroking/conditioning sessions, solos and ice dance. At Mlacak Arena, we are fortunate to have a heated music room overlooking the ice surface where the music players work with the coaches on ice to play music for each STARSkate session.
We rely on the families and friends of our Skaters to play music on their Skater’s sessions. Music duties are usually done by a skater’s parents, however skaters, grandparents, siblings and friends often help out as well. How often each Skater is responsible for playing music is dependent on how many sessions they skate on and how many other skaters are skating on these sessions.
To share the Music Playing responsibility and to minimize the burden on families of Skaters who skate on our less populated sessions, we have limited the number of times that each Skater is responsible for playing music to twice per session, per season.
