Then, in the 70s, after his performances in the black-and-white TV, I had a solid conviction: that's it, the continuation of figure skating. That's is his future. Not a sport, but art. That's what draws the viewer in this action. Comprehension of music by a plasticity of continuous motion, at a speed, in a flight. What is missing in the ballet.

**
However, the future of figure skating seems to have occurred, and there was no place for art. And the artist Toller Cranston has remained the single skater of plasticity, alone in his stubborn desire to show music in motion on the ice.
