Ice Dance

 

IMG_4972Ice dancing is a discipline of figure skating that draws from ballroom dancing. It joined the World Figure Skating Championships in 1952, and became a Winter Olympic Games medal sport in 1976.

Ice dancing is a popular recreational sport as well as a major focal point of international competitions. Like competition-level pairs skating, it is elegant and dazzling, but it does not have the jumps, over-head lifts or extended spins. Ice dancing has different rules and a greater emphasis on the way skaters move to the music.

 

ADULT SKATING

NISA values the membership and participation of our adult skaters, whether new to the sport or returning after skating as a child.  Adult skaters can progress through the Skate UK programme to the NISA test levels and beyond, and there are regular local and national competitions, culminating in the British Adult Championships each season.

NISA holds an Adult Development Camp on an annual basis, which caters to a wide range of abilities and covers important topics such as basic skills, training techniques and off-ice conditioning to name but a few.  Moderators include some of the best coaches and skaters available.
