957: Blades on Ice: Figure Skating at the 2022 Olympics
January 31-February 3
1:45 PM - 3:15 PM
The premiere event of the 2022 Olympics is figure skating. This course will help you understand and appreciate figure skating. We will devote most of our time to singles and pairs skating, and less time to dance. We’ll watch video of the top skaters who will be competing at the Olympics, as well as video of the most brilliant performances in figure skating history. You’ll learn to distinguish between a triple axel, double salchow, and single toe loop. We’ll discuss how performances are scored. Finally, you’ll get to watch a 2021 World Championship performance, and you’ll be asked to score one of the competitors. How does your score compare to the judges actual scores? Sign up for this course to find out.
