What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

The Ice Poet

We just bought tickets to take The Littles (our nephew’s 3-year-old twins) to Disney on Ice, so YouTube just started suggesting skating videos to me. I’m not mad about it. Figure skating is an art form I’ve explored before, so when I clicked on the first recommended video, Isabeau Levito’s short program at the U.S. Championships, I expected to see something pretty. This now-15-year-old athlete absolutely blew me away! Her artistry and musicality are every bit as impressive as her athleticism. What a wonder!

Her beautiful choreography is done by coach Yulia Kuznetsova, and it’s just marvelous. And whoever’s picking her costumes has quite an eye. She looks so elegant! Her music choices are really solid, too. Levita skates out of the Skating Club of Southern NJ. They must be so proud of her.

You can follow the adorable Isabeau Levito on Instagram and you can learn more about her on the US Figure Skating Fanzone website.

  1. It was roller skates but that was how I met my wife. Dancing weil always be number one but skating will also be a very close second. Donna made me super happy today. Hal.

  3. Oh yes..she is a perfectly wonderful skater. This was my fantasy dream when younger and I spent hours on keyed roller skates doing the dream. Once in a while I got to ice but not often enough.

  4. I know next to nothing about figure skating but even I can tell this young woman has massive talent. I was a pretty good roller skater (four wheels) back in the day but I could never get the hang of ice skating. I was like an elephant seal on ice. I, therefore, marvel at people who can look so graceful, elegant, and fluid when skating.
