Figure Skating Photo Information
I have done most of my figure skating photography in New England, at shows rather than competitions - Champions on Ice and Stars on Ice, Evening with Champions and Boston Ice Chips, and at ice skating shows in Marlboro, Ma. and Simsbury, Ct. Competitions include Improv-Ice (in the 1990s) and currently Marshalls Figure Skating Challenge.

Often I am an official photographer for an ice show, with a press pass which entitles me to a seat in the center first row (and the rights to sell my photos), but other times I buy ice skating event tickets like everyone else and may sit as far back as the 12th, which is more difficult for photography. Currently I use a Minolta 7 camera with 1600 film and a 210 or 300 zoom lens. My Konica Minolta A200 digital camera is not capable of such low light, high speed photography.

Figure Skating Photo Purchases
Select figure skating photos (from shows without photography restrictions or where I have an arrangement to photograph the show/event for free in exchange for free use of my photographs) are occasionally for sale on my Ebay page or can be purchased directly depending upon existing stock. I rarely however have photos reprinted, and not all photos I posted can legally be sold. Inquire by emailing Tracy Marks.

What is Ice Dance?

Ice dance is a form of figure skating involving a man and woman skating together to the rhythm of music, in the manner of ballroom dancing on ice.

Unlike pairs which involves many acrobatic "tricks", throws and above-the- head lifts, ice dance depends upon close dance holds, intricate footwork including "twizzles", synchronized spinning close together, and expressive interpretation of the music. Ice dance partners are expected to maintain a continuous flowing connection to the beat of the music, and may not separate or stop on the ice for more than 5 seconds.

Ice dance competitions have three parts - the compulsory dance, in which all teams skate to the same music; the original dance, in which a specific dance form is required (such as waltz, or rhumba) but teams may choose their own music; and the longer and more creative free dance, in which partners have more flexibility in choosing their music (vocals allowed) and ice dance steps, although there are specific requirement for the number and kinds of lifts, spins, twizzles and step sequences.

Ice dance did not become an Olympic sport until 1976, but soon reached its moment of glory with Torvill and Dean's gold medal (six 6.0s) Bolero performance at the 1984 Olympics. Recent Olympic winners in ice dance include: Navka and Kostomarov (2006), Anissina and Peizerat (2002), Grishuk and Platov (1998). For the first time in thirty years, the U.S. medalled at the Olympics in ice dance in 2002 - Belbin and Agosto won the silver medal.
