My all-time favorite Olympic sport is Ice Dancing. I love the intricacies of the step sequences and how in sync the partners must be at all times. The beauty of these teams is spell-binding.
I took up figure skating a few years ago and am a member of a social ice dance club -- so I can appreciate how hard this sport is. Even the patterned dances I am working on are a challenge to stay on time and in sync with a partner. Full disclosure -- there are no twizzles, lifts or throws in social ice dance. I spend most of my time working on three turns and Mohawks.
I ended up creating two blocks. The first is an ice dance couple. I found that by eliminating the guy, I was able to create a female figure skater block as well.
Feel free to trace my blocks to create your own foundation patterns.
Here is the video tutorial for the first block.
