IN FLIGHT: THE ART OF ICE DANCE INTERNATIONAL GREAT PERFORMANCES

 

IN FLIGHT: THE ART OF ICE DANCE INTERNATIONAL captures the grace and artistry of ice dance, offering a front-row seat to a creative new American art form – a combination of figure skating and dance, unbound by the technical rules of competitive skating. Taped on location at an outdoor ice rink in Sun Valley, Idaho, this dynamic performance special features top skating talent from Ice Dance International (IDI), a ballet company on ice. The program, hosted by IDI artistic director Douglas Webster, showcases six contemporary and classic ice dances arranged by some of today’s most successful ice dance choreographers. It also features interviews with top names from the world of ice skating and dance, including Edward Villella, one of America’s most celebrated male ballet dancers; Judy Blumberg, U.S. Olympian and five-time U.S. ice dance champion; and Jojo Starbuck, two-time Olympian and three-time U.S. pair skating champion.

AMERICA BY THE NUMBERS WITH MARIA HINOJOSA
Our Private Idaho

 

American suburbs are becoming more diverse, but the “exurbs” that surround them remain overwhelmingly white. In fact, while whites account for only eight percent of total U.S. population growth, they make up 73 percent of growth in exurban areas. Visit Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, a town that successfully ousted the Aryan Nations in 2000, but remains more than 94 percent white. Explore both the allure and complexity of living in a homogenous community.
