All the Best Figure Skating Movies on Netflix

While Spinning Out, a Netflix drama is the most recent (and most dramatic) figure skating show, it is far from just one. Thanks to its high potential for drama and, of course, all the sparkles, the sport has been grist for the mill for movies and television for decades. 

So here are All the Best Figure Skating Movies on Netflix.

Figure skating

Figure skating focuses more on jumps, lifts, death spirals, and spins. There are both pairs and men’s and women’s singles competitions.
