Ice skating is more just skating for fun and figure skating is doing spins and jumps

Ice skating is any type of skating and figure skating is dancing on ice

Whoever put that is wrong! Ice Skating is a sport that just sums up every thing you do on ice... it is a category of all the skating activities on ice! True figure skating is like dancing and spinning (i should know i have won a figure skating Competition!) But it is just a category!
