Please note that in the case of a stand-alone pattern dance – one that is not part of a Short Dance – the time deductions for interruptions to the program do not apply. The deductions for interruptions and falls in pattern dances have not changed and are listed on page 4 of the 2013-2014 Skate Canada Ice Dance Pre-Event Technical Package for Pre-Juvenile to Novice. However, the new deduction of 1.0 for Pre-Juvenile or Juvenile or 2.5 for Pre-Novice or Novice will apply if a team requests a three-minute break.
