Skating coach has holistic approach to teaching sport

In this June 3, 2018, photo provided by Championship Figure Skating Camp, skater Isabella Melendez practices a spiral at Essex County Codey Arena in West Orange, N.J. Rosie Tovi has a better idea. The figure skating coach believes _ and she has many supporters throughout the ice world _ an emphasis on "happy and healthy" should take precedence over turning the sport into gymnastics in a rink. The longtime coach and choreographer calls it a holistic approach. "Holistic is a perfect word, because it is the whole," says Tovi, who will be launching her Championship Figure Skating Camp at the Essex County Codey Arena in West Orange on June 25.
