Majesty and grace come alive during ‘In Flight: The Art of Ice Dance International’

Lace up your skates and catch “In Flight: The Art of Ice Dance International” on Monday, May 13, at 9 p.m. on Arizona PBS.

The documentary captures the grace and artistry of ice dance, offering a front-row seat to a creative new American art form – a combination of figure skating and dance, unbound by the technical rules of competitive skating.

Filmed on location at an outdoor ice rink in Sun Valley, Idaho, this performance special features top skating talent from Ice Dance International (IDI), a ballet company on ice. The program, hosted by IDI artistic director Douglas Webster, showcases six contemporary and classic ice dances arranged by some of today’s most successful ice dance choreographers.

It also features interviews with top names from the world of ice skating and dance, including Edward Villella, one of America’s most celebrated male ballet dancers; Judy Blumberg, U.S. Olympian and five-time U.S. ice dance champion; and Jojo Starbuck, two-time Olympian and three-time U.S. pair skating champion.
