How much money does a figure skater earn?

It depends on where you live how old you are. Who ever you are skating for decides how much you get paid. If you are going pro then you would more than likely get paid a lot. But you also lose a lot of money too. you pay at least $6,000 a year to be a professional skater.
When competing in things like the National, World, or Grand Prix events, they aren't paid. They are doing it for enjoyment. While many of them are sponsored, they are not paid. Once skaters quit the competing and join the pro, like Stars on ice, they get paid, but I don't know how much.
