Summary: She's performed at the highest levels, from the Olympics to the world championships to the Goodwill Games. Now, in Artistry on Ice: Figure Skating Skills & Style , 1994 Olympic silver medalist Nancy Kerrigan shares her knowledge to give you the inside edge on winning competitive events. From body alignment and effective routine elements to refining footwork, music, and expression, Artistry on Ice: Figure Skating Skills & Style gives you an in-depth look at the sport from the perspective of one of its champions. After a quick look at the basics, Kerrigan concentrates on advanced techniques for jumps, spins, moves in the field, ice dancing, pairs, and synchronized skating. Four chapters are devoted solely to competition, covering the music, choreography, costumes, and other elements to create the total package. Filled with practical information, Artistry on Ice: Figure Skating Skills & Style also includes renowned trainer Igor Burdenko's insights on physical preparation for the sport as well as a chapter on off-ice training, and insight on finding the perfect coach. From triumphs over personal tragedy to superb performance under pressure in the 2000 Goodwill Games, Kerrigan prevailed against many challenges in her 20-year career. Now she teams with former figure skater and professional instructor Mary Spencer to share the experience that will take your skating to the top.
