How can I convince my parents to let me take figure skating lessons?
My level right now is Pre-Alpha. I'm 10. I started last year. I really want to go through the levels quicker because I want to compete.

The last level in figure skating is "I won the Olympic gold medal." You are most unlikely to get anywhere unless you skate year round. An hour a week wouldn't hurt your schoolwork - in fact regular exercise has been proven to help kids concentrate better.
