U.S. Figure Skating announced Friday that it will continue a promotional partnership with Disson Skating, a longtime producer of figure skating shows. The renewed partnership marks the seventh consecutive year that the organizations have worked together to promote figure skating in the Unites States.

As part of the relationship with Disson Skating, U.S. Figure Skating members will receive benefits during the 2013-14 Disson Skating Series. Special offers include ticket discounts; access to exclusive "Chalk Talks," question-and-answer sessions held with select skaters prior to each show; and early ticket-buying opportunities in some cases.

In addition to the live in-arena shows, NBC will broadcast the four-show Disson NBC Skating Series. The live shows begin with the "Musselman's Apple Sauce Family Skating Tribute" on Saturday, Nov. 3, in University Park, Pa. NBC will air the show from 4-6 p.m. (ET) Sunday, Nov. 24. The full Disson NBC Skating Series schedule is below.

"Disson Skating has been a great supporter of the sport of figure skating for many years, and we are happy to work with them again to promote our top athletes and alumni," said David Raith, executive director, U.S. Figure Skating. "We welcome the opportunity to showcase the athleticism and personalities of our skaters on NBC during this very important Olympic season."

U.S. Figure Skating and Disson Skating will work with local skating clubs to host Destination SochiTM SkateFests in each of the four cities where a show will take place during the 2013-14 season. Free and open to the public, SkateFests provide the opportunity for skaters of all ages to participate in free group lessons based on their experience levels while meeting members of the show's cast.

"Disson Skating has enjoyed its long standing partnership with U.S. Figure Skating on our NBC skating and entertainment specials and is excited to showcase the top eligible skaters in America," said Steve Disson, president, Disson Skating.

Icenetwork Season Pass subscribers will also benefit from the partnership by receiving on-demand access to previous seasons' Disson Skating specials.

Ticket information for the Disson Skating Series live shows will be announced at a later date. To learn more, visit www.dissonskating.com.
