A world-renowned dance choreographer once said to me about figure skating: "Sport? Art? Sport? Art? It's sport."
Yes, we are athletes in a competitive sport, but it's the artistry
- the grace, fluidity and musicality - that brings the athleticism
to life on the ice. Technique serves our artistry, while our artistic expression brings meaning and joy to the technique.
Sport and Art...in figure skating, the two are forever linked.
