The legendary ice show star, Richard Dwyer, is considered one of the most famous skating show stars in figure skating history. He skated in both Ice Follies and Ice Capades and was also known as "Mr. Debonair." This photo gallery shows some of Dwyer's most memorable skating moments.

Note: Thank you Ice Theatre of New York for many of the photos included in this gallery.

Every Ice Follies show included a Swing Waltz ice dance number. Dwyer is in the center of the above photo.

"I skated the Swing Waltz with my sister Dolores for one year," said Richard Dwyer. "Dolores toured with me in the show for two and a half years. I believe we skated the Swing Waltz together in 1952."
