Best Answer

No one knows the exact history of ice skating although it is believed to have been around for hundreds of years. The first ice skating organization was formed in the 1700s and the first instructional book was written by a British miliary man named Robert Jones. An American named Jackson Haines was the first to use dance and Ballet movements in a figure skating routine. This was in the mid 1800s.
