Ice Dance

Ice Dance is a form of ballroom dancing on the ice where a man and woman skate together and perform a variety of turns, steps, twizzles, spins and lifts. Unlike Pairs Skating, overhead lifts are not permitted.


Another distinctive aspect of ice dance is the particular use of music in the performances. In ice dancing, dancers must skate to music with a definite beat or rhythm, which brings out the character and flavour of that particular dance.
