Pair Skating

Pairs is an exciting discipline that combines the jumps and spins of singles free skating with daring, acrobatic elements.  A pair consists of a male and female partner peforming a routine to music.  The team will perform elements in unison, called side by side elements, and will work together in performing crowd pleasing lifts, throw jumps and death spirals.
