    That's great. I wish I was coordinated enough to make a great ice dancer. With my lack of balance, I think I'd make a great zamboni driver :lol:

    I'd love to be a pairs skater. But when I was young, now I'm sure I'd die.

    That's really great. :)

    If I could skate, I would love to be an ice dancer.

    Good luck with your skating. :)

    I don't know about my actual skating considering I am definitely not a natural, but my back is really really flexible so I think I would have a decent layback.

    I'm jealous :p Just the thought of doing a layback causes my back to go into spasms.

    My coach always wanted me to do ice dance since I used to do ballroom dance (I learned skating in my twenties) but trying to get a male partner for amateur ice dance... forget it. But then, he also used to amuse himself by tossing me into the air to teach me jumps, and I could land everything. Just couldn't reliably start the jump myself! So maybe pairs!

    I would be a men's single skater because I can hop up on a box taller than my hips, just like Max Aaron.

    *Yawn, stretch* That was quite a dream!

    I think I would have to do pairs or ice dance since I'm better performing with others than on my own. Prob ice dance since I'm not very athletic.

    I like speed, and like to accomplish things quickly, so I'd be a short-track speed skater.

    Strangely enough I find watching speed skating incredibly boring. Go figure lol.

    I could be an ice dancer (never tried ice dancing though) because edges come easy to me. Jumping does not, and there is no way I would do a pairs lift or throw. I am not even skating anymore.

    I've always been a jumper, but the older I get the better I get at ice dancing.

    Glad you are having fun, FSWer!

    Well I am a dancer. At the old age of 20, I started skating for the first time and was considered a "natural" in that I didn't have issues with falling, edges, and I was jumping in the first few weeks. My coach thought the ballet helped, I felt that skating went against all my ballet training and I felt I had the hardest time untucking my popo and not being so pulled back and straight up and down.

    I think I'd be a great pair, because of my posture and core strength. I also love being lifted. I think being a pair would help hide the fact that I don't love spinning. There is a lot less of that in pairs and dance. I wouldn't want to be an ice dancer, because I do like jumping. I used to freak my coach out when I'd try to teach myself based off of what I saw on tv. She'd look at me like, you're an adult, you should be more terrified.

    This is all hypothetical, I started way too old and I was way too poor as a child for it to have been a reality. I'm also tall for a pair. At almost 5'5" I need to immigrate to Russia or something. I'd love to have a partner though, for dance or mini pairs.

    I would probably be Michelle Kwan...or a flower girl

    No but srsly, singles. I took skating lessons as a child, and I love practicing figure skating moves on inlines (when no ones's watching of course)!

    I'd love to be an ice dancer but flower collector is probably my limit.
