2014 LAKE PLACID ICE DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS HIGHLIGHTS

The Lake Placid Ice Dance Championships began their storied history in 1932, the same year the village hosted their first Olympic games. Eighty-two years later, North America’s premier ice dancing event attracts competitors from around the world.  The 2014 Championships held July 28-August 2 had skaters representing Canada, Denmark, Georgia, Great Britain, Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, and the USA.

The competition serves a dual role early in the season. It allows skaters to present their programs before a live audience and a panel of judges who critique the performances and give positive constructive feedback about the music cuts, costumes, choreography, presentation etc.  It also gives federations the opportunity to observe skaters and select participants for Grand Prix and other fall competitions.

Awards are presented to the top three in each group competition.
