Training in Oxford, OH, Miami University Varsity already competed at two different competitions in the US. Since the beginning of the season, this Senior team continues to show marked improvement. Learn more about their programs!
The Senior team is coming off of a season with two international bronze medals from the Cup of Berlin and Leon Lurje Trophy and are the reigning 2018 National Bronze medalist.
Survivor is the music for Miami’s short program this year that is a remix of the original version from Destiny’s Child. The free skate is a Tango infused program. "Both programs this year are designed to show power, speed, and strength in two completely different ways." Both programs show a lot of speed throughout the whole program with the help of the great skating quality this team holds.
Both of the programs encompass a great deal of expression through not only the face but the body as well. The skaters exhibit their passion for the program, for their team, and for the sport when they skate. These two programs are a great tie in with all of the lessons that the team has learned from prior seasons and what skills have been built into the organization since establishment.
