It is different from the other disciplines and for me harder to judge.
The use of the word "sport" seems to be getting too much play. Ice Dancers are very good athletes and very good skaters.
We typically hear of "dance competitions" more than "the sport of dance."
With that in mind I think of Ice Dancing as a competition that depends on more than just athletic aspects to produce a winner or a podium.
