Received this in an email today from US Figure Skating:

Hello Athletes!

U.S. Figure Skating is excited to announce the launch of the 2011-12 Solo Dance Competition Series.  This is the second season for this Solo Dance Series in which ice dancers compete at specific nonqualifying competitions within their section and earn points based on their placement.  The top skaters in each section and level will advance to National Solo Dance Championships in September 2012. This program serves as a membership and dance discipline development tool, and is open to individual skaters within the Eastern, Midwestern and Pacific Coast sections. 

We are excited to announce that the 2011-12 Series will include both Solo Pattern Dance and Solo Free Dance events.  Also, the 2011-12 Solo Dance Series season will run from October 1, 2011 – August 26, 2012. 

The timeframe to register for skaters wishing to participate in the Series is from September 15, 2011 to March 1, 2012.  Although the deadline to register is on or before March 1, 2012, we are requiring any skater who wishes to participate in the Series to be registered as a Series participant with U.S. Figure Skating prior to entering a participating Series competition that they plan to have count towards their point balance in the Series.  A list of participating nonqualifying Series competitions will be available on the Solo Dance Series webpage at the start of November.
