The latest Manleywoman SkateCast is an interview with Ricky Harris, the first dedicated figure skating choreographer, and author of three books on figure skating and choreography. Certainly Sandra Bezic, Lori Nicol, and others wouldn't exist in the same way without her.
Ricky Harris skated with the Sonia Henie show, and created a series of successful workshops that are being continued by American Ice Theater with Jodi Porter. She did choreography for Evan Lysacek, Michelle Kwan, Babilonia/Gardner, Blumberg/Seibert, Scott Hamilton, Linda Fratianne, and so many more. Ricky Harris talks about what it was like being the first choreographer to sit in the Kiss & Cry, how Scott Hamilton wouldn’t initially take direction from her, and how Frank Carroll and Don Laws were some of her biggest supporters.
