Holiday on Ice | Artmas 2020

❄️   ⛄   🕯️   🎄   🎁   ❄️   ⛄   🕯️   🎄   🎁   ❄️   ⛄   🕯️   🎄   🎁   ❄️   ⛄   🕯️   🎄   🎁   ❄️

Artmas day three! Today I’m featuring an art form I’ve never featured before: figure skating! Growing up I would visit my local library & devour every book I could find on my favorite skaters. Even though I was a dancer for 12 1/2 years, my skills on land never translated to ice. I have reoccurring tailbone pain & memories of a cut hand to prove it! That’s why I leave this artistic sport in the hands of the professionals. I have chosen twelve programs from three ladies & three pairs for your viewing pleasure. Start scrolling to experience the icy magic. Enjoy!
