           OXFORD OPEN ICE DANCE COMPETITION
             Monday 30 April/Tuesday 1 May 2012 – Oxford Ice Rink
General Requirements for all Free Dance events
Free Dance is the skating of a creative dance program blending dance steps and movements
expressing the character/rhythm(s) of the dance music chosen. The Free Dance must contain
combinations of new or known dance steps and movements including Required Elements composed
into a well-balanced, whole unit displaying excellent skating technique and the personal creativity of
the skater in concept, arrangement, and expression. The program including Required Elements must
be skated in time and phase with the music. The skater should skate primarily in time to the rhythmic
beat, and not to the melody alone. The choreography should clearly reflect the dance character,
accents and nuances of the chosen dance music, demonstrating distinct changes of mood and pace
with variations in speed and tempo. The program must utilize the whole ice surface.
Spins, stops and pirouettes are not allowed during the step sequences.
Toe steps, kneeling, sliding on two knees and performing a full split position on the ice is permitted
only if not used excessively. Attention should be paid to the IJS definition of a fall at all levels.

Music
Vocal music is permitted in this competition unless otherwise stated. However the following rule
denotes beat and melody to be applied.
The music for Free Dance must be suitable for Ice Dance as a sport discipline and must have the
following characteristics:
i)       The music must have an audible rhythmic beat and melody, or audible rhythmic beat alone,
         but not melody alone. The music may be without an audible rhythmic beat for up to 10
         seconds at the beginning or end of the program and up to 10 seconds during the program.
ii)      The music must have at least one change of tempo and/or expression. This change may be
         gradual or immediate, but in either case it must be obvious.
iii)     All music including classical music must be cut/edited, orchestrated or arranged in a way that
         it creates an interesting, colourful, entertaining dance program with different moods or a
         building effect.
iv)      The music must be suitable for the competitor’s skating skills and technical ability.
Free Dances that do not adhere to these guidelines will be severely penalized.

Costume
LADIES must wear a full skirt. It must go around the entire waist. However there may be slits in the
skirt on one or both sides up to the waist.
MEN must wear full length trousers – no tights allowed. Costumes must not be sleeveless
Costumes must not give the effect of excessive nudity – the majority of the upper body must be
covered.
Costumes should be appropriate for athletic competition – they must not have so much material or
decorations that the bodyline of the skater cannot be seen.

Accessories and Props
Accessories and props are not permitted. This includes any part of the costume being used as a
support in a Dance Lift.
Costume decorations must be non-detachable.

Other
All rules will follow the ISU rules for Dance couples, including costume, timing, call to start, re-start
etc. For clarification of any of these rules, please see ISU Special Regulations and Technical
Rules Single and Pair Skating and Ice Dance 2010, including but not restricted to rules 350, 353, 610,
612.

   Northern Ireland, and must be eligible as defined by NISA.
2. All competitions will be held in accordance with the regulations and bylaws of NISA.
3. Test standards relate to the current NISA dance test schedules. Standards are as at the closing
   date for the competition. If the entrant’s test standard changes on or before the closing date, the
   organiser should be notified immediately.
4. There are no age restrictions on any event: skaters may enter at any level for which they are
   qualified by standard.
5. Skaters may enter one or both of the pattern dance and free dance events.
6. All events will be run using the Relative Judging System (RJS).
7. All solo events will be subdivided into male and female.
8. The organising committee reserves the right to refuse any entry without giving a reason, and to
   alter or cancel any part of the competition deemed necessary. Entries will be limited by number
   should more entries be received than time will permit, and priority will be given to those entries
   received earliest. A reserve list will be held for oversubscribed events.
9. Applications must be received by 28 March 2012.
10. Only written applications will be accepted. Photocopies of entry forms will be accepted.
11. Only competitors or their parents/guardians may cancel their entry. The organisers regret that in
    no circumstances can entry fees be refunded after the closing date.
12. For free dance events, only music on CD (with one track recorded on it) can be accepted. Music
    should be clearly marked with the competitor’s name and event entered, and handed in to
    reception on arrival. It is recommended that all skaters keep a second copy of music with them in
    case of non-playing or poor quality sound, for which the organising committee is unable to accept
    responsibility.
13. Where an e-mail address is supplied, this will be used to acknowledge receipt of entry and to
    send out all competition information. If an e-mail address is not supplied, a large (minimum A5)
    stamped addressed envelope should be enclosed with the entry form. Applicants wishing to
    receive proof of receipt by post should enclose a further S.A.E.
14. Trophies must be signed for and held at the winner’s risk. They must be returned to Oxford Ice
    Dance Club when requested, at the holder’s own expense. They must not be taken out of the UK.
15. The personal details supplied by competitors on the application form will be held on computer files
    and used for the purposes of organising timetables, running the competitions, calculation of
    results from marks given by the judges, etc.
16. Photography and video photography are allowed with the prior permission of the skaters
    concerned, or their parents/guardians for under-18s. However, the rink management requires a
    form to be completed by competitors or spectators wishing to take photographs. Note that flash
    photography will not be permitted during warm-ups or competitions either on the ice or at the rink
    side.
Cheques should be made payable to “Oxford Ice Dance Club”. A single cheque for all events
entered is preferred, with competitor’s name and event(s) written on the back.
Entry forms and payment should be posted to:
