Did you know?!
Neither throws nor jumps are allowed in Ice Dancing; since this event is inspired by technical movements and ballroom dancing, it places most of its techniques in footwork, coordination, and movement. Spins and lifts, while still appropriate, take a bit of a turn from the requirements seen in the other skating events while hydroblading can be used across the board. In fact, hydroblading was popularized in Ice Dancing, partly because it has a higher difficulty, especially when two skaters perform the technique in tandem. Hydroblading occurs when the skater sinks low on one leg with their other leg extended outward to the opposite side. (per funtrivia.com)
