Pair skating and dancing on ice

Pair skating and dancing on ice - Robert Dench, Rosemarie Stewart The authors, Stewart and Dench, were stars of the Ice Capades show (and its movies) in its early years. Though the "how-to" element is predominant in this book, it is a "how-to" from such an early stage in the development of both disciplines that it is fascinating in itself (the fully extended overhead lift is not yet in existence, for instance). There are also some interesting photos of the Ice Capades in the chapter on "Show Skating". One of the things most startling to a modern reader is the casual assumption inherent in this book that there is no need to specialize in one or other of these disciplines, separate though they may be.
