Pairs skating fits under the category of the sport 'figure skating'.

In figure skating, there are 3 main categories that compete: singles, pairs, and ice dance. There's also synchronized skating, which doesn't generally compete at the same events as the others.

Out of singles, pairs, and ice dance, pairs is the most dangerous. Basically everything is done with your partner, including throws, side-by-side jumps, spins, and lifts.
