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