The world cannot live without the Arctic;
it affects every living thing on Earth and
acts as a virtual thermostat, reflecting
sunlight and cooling the planet.

No, these performers on the ice aren’t doing Layback Spins or attempting a Triple Lutz, but what they lack in artistic presentation and technical difficulty, they more than make up in entertainment value.

    LOVED IT! I took my kid to a zoo when he was about 7 and there was a polar bear there, in his cold enclosure, doing a really weird repetitive dance. We watched him repeat the same six-step sequence about five, six times and then I got the idea of starting to be the “square dance caller” so I projected my voice toward the dancing bear while rhythmically saying: One, two, one two three, now step back and back back back, swing and swing and two moe shakes, one little hop and step and shake, forward now and one two three, one more time and now RE-PEAT! One, two, one two three, now step back and back back back, swing and swing and two moe shakes, one little hop and step and shake, forward now and one two three, one more time and now RE-PEAT!
    Other kids passing by actually stopped and marveled that the bear understood the directions and followed them. The my kid got embarrassed and made me stop. But the bear kept going, and I heard one mother tell her kid, “Wow look at that! He learned it so fast!”
