As any member of the Professional Figure Skaters Cooperative (PFSC) can tell you, a show skating career has many rewards. The PFSC was created for show skaters by show skaters. We created this site to help you get started in the world of show skating. Once you're ready to wow producers and audiences alike, your PFSC membership can help you find work and connect with the show skating community.
