Over 100 skaters will perform in the 55th annual Braemar Ice Show.
On April 21 and 22, members of the Braemar City of Lakes Figure Skating Club will perform in the 55th annual Braemar Ice Show. Performances will be at 6:30 p.m. both days, at the West Arena.
The theme for this year’s show is Our Favorite Fairy Tales. About 125 skaters will participate in group and solo performances, with skaters ranging in age from 4 to 18. “That’s some of our high-level award winners right down to our city class kids, who are just beginning Learn to Skate [classes],” says Holly Dau, president of the skating club.
The club has nine graduating seniors, all of whom will have a featured performance in the show. One of those seniors, Ashley Blanton, also designed the programs and posters for the show.
“It’s a big production … where there’s numbers and choreography and ways that it all fits together,” Dau says. “This is one of the biggest shows we’ve had in years, which is amazing … you don’t have to pay a ridiculous amount to see a really professionally produced show. This is right here in our community, showcasing our kids.”
The performances are open to the public, and tickets can be purchased through figure skating club members or on the day of the ice show at the arena. Dau notes that there’s plenty of seating available, so tickets should be available for day-of purchase. —Amy Overgaard
