Skating School

An organization other than a Club that is operating for the general purpose of providing Skate Canada skating programs.

Slide Chassé

The same as chassé except that on the second step the free foot slides off the ice in front of the skating foot when the skater is skating forward, and to the back when the skater is skating backward (e.g. steps 7 & 10 in the Canasta Tango).

Slip Step

A step skated in a straight line with the blades of both skates being held flat on the ice. The weight is over the skating leg that may be well bent or straight while the free foot slides forward on the ice to full extension.

Solo Dance

The term used when a skater skates the full pattern of a dance alone.

Solo Spin

In ice dance, a spinning movement performed on one foot on the spot by one partner alone (with or without the assistance of the other partner) or by both partners simultaneously (around separate centres).

Special Meeting

A special meeting of Members.

Special Resolution

A resolution passed by a majority of not less than two-thirds (2/3) of the votes cast on that resolution.


An element where the skater rapidly revolves, centred on a single point on the ice, while holding one or more body positions.  In singles and pairs, a spin must have at least three revolutions to be considered a spin. The minimum number of revolutions in a position is two without interruption.

Spin In One Position

In singles and pairs, any spin which has only one of the three basic positions and no non-basic positions.  In spins in one position and flying spins in one position, the concluding upright position at the end of the spin is not considered to be another position independent of the number of revolutions, as long as the skater is executing only the final wind-up without any enhancements.


A gliding position executed on one foot with free leg extended (including knee and foot) above hip level.
