The Professional Skaters' Association (PSA) made this 2-video set of USFSA
Moves in the Field (Pre-Preliminary through Senior level) when MITF were first
introduced several years ago as a replacement for school figures.  It is my
understanding, however, that a NEWLY REVISED MITF video is in the works which
will incorporate all of the USFSA rulebook changes in the past few years.  So
my advice would be to wait to purchase the new video, instead of the now,
somewhat outdated PSA set.

The original PSA video features skaters from young to "known" ones like Gig
Siruno and Damon Allen (Allen will be competing in senior men at the upcoming
U.S. Nationals in Cleveland) demonstrating each required Move from each of the
8 USFSA test levels.

As I said above, I recommend waiting for the new MITF video to come out.  If
anyone hears any news about a release date for the new video, please post about
it here.  Thanks.

Dang!  The first videos weren't cheap.

Well, what do you expect - your national organisation wants to make
money just as much as ours does!

My coach comments that at least the new CD for the compulsory
dances is available from NISA and doesn't have to be sent to
Switzerland for.....
