An Introduction to the art of Figure Skating (10 minutes)
The basics never go out of style. So go ahead and learn a move or two from the late, great figure skating champion Barbara Ann Scott in this 1948 black-and-white instructional short from the National Film Board. Accompanied by earnest narration and retro mathematical diagrams, the twenty-year-old Scott demonstrates the fundamentals of figure skating that are still taught today. And since she is still the only Canadian to have ever won the Olympic ladies’ singles gold medal for this sport, you can consider these lessons golden.
