About the MVSA Aspire Learn-to-Compete Summer Program: Want to learn to compete in figure skating competitions and do not know where to start!?! Join the MVSA Aspire Learn-to-Compete Summer 2022 Program! The Aspire Learn-to-Compete program is designed to promote a positive introduction into the world of competitive figure skating in a fun and inspiring format. Each week, skaters will learn new aspects of the world of competitive figure skating including how to design/choregraph a program, choose music, ideas for competition clothing as well as preparation for what to expect before, during and after a competition. The Aspire Learn-to-Compete program will culminate with an exhibition and in-house critique on August 20th 9:15am. Skaters will be guided through the format of an actual competition and receive feedback from our in-house judges.
