If you were wondering if there is a difference between ice dancing and ice skating, yes there is. Britannica defines ice dancing as,

“…similar to pairs in that two people skate together, but, unlike pairs, ice dancers do not do jumps and do only certain kinds of lifts. Instead, ice dancers focus on creating footwork and body movements that express dance on ice.”

Gabriella and Guillaume understand the importance of bringing their emotion into their dance to truly express their dance.

“We always try to be the most sincere in our interpretation, to really give something true to the public. We also try to break new ground through choreography, costumes, and just to be ourselves. We’ve been dancing together for 10 years already and people often tell us they can feel this connection – I think that’s one of the things that people like,” Guillaume stated in an interview.

Professional dancing is an intricate balance between staying graceful and strong to be able to complete a routine. Gabriella and Guillaume have to conquer this balance but have to do it on ice. This creates another thread they have to balance with.

The talent between this duo is extraordinary.

Many people watch ice events for the amazing jumps and tricks, but not watching ice dancing is just as amazing. The partners might not be doing complicated jumps but how they are able to move on the ice together is transfixing. The two events are not even comparable because how unique both really are.

There are only a few similarities between the two: they both compete on ice and both are very beautiful to watch.
