Figure skating is acceptable.

Though ice dancing can go back to the hole that spawned it.

Both both both :D
A sport because it can be very demanding physically (for technical elements)
And an art because it is also a performance :D (why the second mark is there...) xD
Its a hell of a lot of fun too! :love:

A Little of both. I used to figure skating just a bit but with the lack of feeling for music(and the behavior of a icehockey player) i was soonly out of the team ;)
I still like it and watch it(or go skating)

A little of both, I feel :nod:

It's really a tough one. When it's a competition, when every aspect of a performance is being scored, then yes, it ought to be a sport. An artistic sport :)

Oh, and in french, the discipline is called "Patinage Artistique" - as you can see, there is the "artistic" word in there ^^

It's a really challenging sport, that takes years of exhaustive training. As well, it could be as artistic as dancing. I appreciate it as a serious discipline and olympic sport. My complete admiration for all the athletes who have dedicated their lives to Figure Skating.

But it's still too gay, lol xD

Definitely a bit of both since the artistic part of the performance is rated as well as the technical skill.
Am watching it right now. :D

A little of both C:

I mean, a sport because it's competitive, and it takes so much work and training to do, but it's also an art form :)
