What Is The National Showcase Competition?
The USFS National Showcase commpetition is an annual non-qualifying competition held by U.S. Figure Skating that fuses artistic creativity with solo, duet, and group ensemble events. It is held over 5 days the first week of August. Most showcase numbers are 2 to 5 ½ minute programs with music from popular Broadway or movie musicals, such as Hamilton, Lion King, Moana, or Chicago. Showcase uses CJS scoring for all events, based on technical merit (20%), skating skills (30%), and entertainment value (50%).
