Enjoy the skate show this weekend

Published 9:37am Friday, March 22, 2013 Updated 11:38am Friday, March 22, 2013

More than 100 kids will lace on their skates and take to the ice for the annual skate show this weekend. As is usually typical, you can expect a high-quality performances from our local skaters. We suggest you visit the Community Arena tonight, Saturday and Sunday for a great show.

This year’s theme, “Heroes and Villains,” also promises to provide entertainment, with appearances by young spidermen, pirates, Cruella deVil and a number of the 101 Dalmations, the evil mother and Rapunzel from “Tangled,” Anastasia, small girl Raiders’ Indiana Jones, Zorro, Wall-E and and so many more.

Count on creative costumes, interesting choreagraphy, and a lot of dedication from the skaters, who have put in many hours on the ice to present the show for our enjoyment.

The work put in the performances is matched only by the team of commited coaches. The time spent working out choreagraphy, working with skaters during the countless practices and choosing and ordering costumes appropriate for the theme, all take time from family and work. We are confident the sacrifice will be worth the effort.

Of course, there are numerous behind-the-scenes helpers who ensure the skaters get on the icce — on cue — who operate the lights and sound — and narrators who announce the skaters and entertain the crowd during lulls.

But perhaps no group is more appreciated than the parents who make sacrifices too numerous to count.

We appreciate all who had a hand in making this show possible for our entertainment.
