Save the date: The ISU Skating Awards 2023

The International Skating Union (ISU) in collaboration with the world-famous skating show Art on Ice, are delighted to announce that the third edition of the ISU Skating Awards will take place on February 5, 2023.

Benefitting from a revisited concept and format, the 2023 ISU Skating Awards edition will be hosted and filmed for the first time in front of a live audience. Equally unique is the fact that the ISU Skating Awards will be integrated into one special Art on Ice show giving rise to an entirely new set-up, atmosphere and experience. The 2023 ISU Skating Awards thus promise to deliver an exceptional show combining performances by musical acts, professional dancers and renowned Figure Skaters, as well as exclusive interviews, behind the scenes and of course the announcement of the Awards winners in each category that viewers will be able to follow on the Skating ISU YouTube channel.

After two editions which were exclusively live-streamed in 2020 and 2021, and the postponement of the 2022 edition, the 2023 ISU Skating Awards will be produced for the first time live in an arena full of spectators and will be simultaneously live streamed.

Reuniting their expertise and passion to celebrate Figure Skating, the ISU and Art on Ice are more than ever committed to presenting a new edition bringing together the fun and entertainment of a skating show with all the glamour of an Award-giving ceremony.

The 2023 edition of the Awards will honor the careers and performances of outstanding Figure Skaters and the work of Coaches and Choreographers for the 2022 calendar year which includes the ISU Championships, the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games and the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series 2022.

Nominees and Figure Skating celebrities will be invited to the exclusive show on February 5, 2023.

Jayne Torvill / Christopher Dean (GBR)

British Ice Dancers Torvill and Dean revolutionized the sport with their immortal “Bolero” that won them Olympic gold in 1984. But there is so much more to them than the “Bolero”. Torvill and Dean brought Ice Dance to another level. Their passionate Rhumba Original Set Pattern Dance from 1994 has been developed into a Compulsory Dance, for example. They continued to create unique programs in shows and tours and as choreographers.



Guest star: James Morisson

Morrison was influenced by the music his parents listened to at a young age. His mother was a soul enthusiast, while his father enjoyed folk and country music. In 2006, he achieved worldwide success with his “Undiscovered” album, that included “You Give Me Something”. It was top of the UK album Charts as of the first week of its release and made Morrison the best-selling Male Solo Artist of 2006 in the UK. In 2007 he received Best British Male Solo Artist at the BRIT Awards.
