Is figure skating a sport or an art?
Figure skating originated in Holland in the XII-XIV century and was a competition for drawing complex shapes on ice, while maintaining the desired posture. The idea itself is art. Just like the artist creates a picture on canvas, the figure skater paints the figures with a blade on the ice. Just skating on ice is considered fun in the winter season and does not apply to either sport or art.
Today, figure skating is a sport that retains its grace, plasticity and strength. In order to create art on ice, an athlete sharpens lines, flexibility in choreography classes, and also devotes time to acting skills in order to show emotions on ice so that the viewer empathizes.
