    What are the names of the Ice-Dance moves?

    Say,I've always wondered what all the names of the Ice-Dance moves were called. Does anyone have a link to that with pic.s of all the moves included?

    Did you want to be more specific? There are a lot of elements in ice dance, some are which are the same idea as singles or pairs and other that are not.
    When watching live I like everyone to skate clean - but on television the occasional trainwreck can be fun.

    Ice dancers do very complicated programs with lots of moves in them, and many ice dancers do the moves differently to get more points. I don't there is a single place that would list all of the moves and have pictures of them too.

    This site

    has diagrams of all the compulsory dances, and has an "ice dance dictionary", but it doesn't have photos.

    These are actually great references I hadn't seen before. Thanks for posting.

    And FSWer, thanks for asking.

    I found this page today: http://figureskating.about.com/od/ic.../freedance.htm
    Includes basic descriptions of dance lifts, dance spins, twizzles, etc.

    Description of dance lifts and a small photo: http://figureskating.about.com/od/gl...dancelifts.htm

    Dance is different from pairs. A lot of dance moves are non-standard one-off moves. We used to make up arbitrary names for things just so we could identify them, "Do you want to work on the teapot lift?" Stuff like that.
