How did figure skating start?

While people have been ice skating for centuries, figure skating in its current form originated in the mid-19th century by Englishman Robert Jones, the first known account of figure skating. Competitions were then held in the "English style" of skating, which was stiff and formal and bears little resemblance to modern figure skating. American skater Jackson Haines considered the "father of modern figure skating", introduced a new style of skating in the mid-1860s. This style, which incorporated free and expressive techniques, became known as the "international style." Although popular in Europe, Haines' style of skating was not widely adopted in the United States until long after his death.


How was figure skating invented?

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.

In what country did figure skating start?

The United Kingdom seems to be the answer to this Question, while ice skating has been around since pre-historic times it seems that in 1742 the first ice skating association was formed in Edinburgh. The first instructional book concerning ice skating was published in London in 1772. The book, written by a British artillery lieutenant, Robert Jones, describes basic figure skating forms such as circles and figure eights. The book was written solely for men, as women did not normally ice skate in the late 18th century. It was with the publication of this manual that ice skating split into its two main disciplines, speed skating and figure skating.
