International Figure Skating;Aug2010, Vol. 16 Issue 4, p8
The article offers the author's insights on figure skating shown in televisions and the reunion performance for "Ice Capades." The author believes that grace, which is on figure skating, is hard to be shown in the past since there are few television channels and that these channels are dominated by football games. She relates her conversation with Stephan Klovan and the fate of "Ice Capades." She also explains why television is not as good at grace extermination as it seems.
