The Different Types Of Ice Skating

Dec 22, 2007
There are various different reasons why people put on a pair of ice skates as there are many different varieties of skating. The list is pretty much endless of every category there is so it is nearly impossible to cover all of them at once. However, certain types are more popular and more well known than others.

Figure skating has become more and more popular over recent decades thanks to ice skates becoming more advanced. Whereas before people were limited in their movements because of the way ice skates were made, nowadays skaters are able to perform all sorts of fancy movements.

In figure skating alone there are several different categories such as singles, pairs, ice dance and synchronised skating. Single skating is the most popular form of figure skating because new ice skates have enabled people to perform jumps, spins and dances to music. The sport has come a long way since it first began as people only used to do it for pleasure whereas now there are competitions held all over the world every year.

Pair ice skating is probably the most interesting and exciting form of skating to watch because more complex moves can be performed such as lifts. Again, many people enter competitions into pair ice skating every year.

If you are looking for fun and thrills when you put your ice skates on then ice dancing is definitely the way to get this. It is best described as ballroom dancing on ice as skaters dance waltzes, foxtrots and any other kind of dance that you can think of. Not only is this a fun way of getting some exercise, it is a true challenge that will make you feel great once you have mastered the art.

Although you don't see or hear much about synchronised swimming, it is one of the more popular forms of figure skating. It is conducted by a team of skaters which usually ranges from 12 to 20 people and they perform routines in unison to music. If you manage to find somewhere that shows this type of skating it is a great form of entertainment and is guaranteed to inspire you to dig out your ice skates.

There are so many different kinds of ice skating that there is one to suit everyone. Whether you are young, old, beginner, advanced, athletic or not, you are bound to find a style that suits you.
