yes they are similar BUT..
you are not supposed to spin on your toe stop in inline.....
naughty naughty .

( although lots get away with it even at international level.. ..)

Having come from Ice to Inline ( ice - Senior test level skater), can say it takes a while to learn to skate with the correct Roller technique expected in higher level competition.
Dance would be vurtually an instant change over but freeskating is a lot different.
Jump landings and Take offs are different to ice and as i mentioned the spinning is a lot harder on inline than ice.
Lastly tho..
having made the change from ice to the inline..
much happier with Inline
