‘Broadway on Ice’ comes to Howelsen Ice Arena
March 15, 2012
The "Broadway on Ice" shows will begin at 7 p.m. each night and will feature synchronized skate groups, a father-daughter skate and three individual performances.
The event also will have nationally ranked skaters perform, including Val Katsman, Madison Fox, Anthony Boucher and Anjing Fu.
General admission tickets are available at All That Jazz and the ice arena, as well as at the door. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 12 and younger. VIP tickets are $25 and include special seating, wine, beer, beverages, appetizers and desserts.
The performance should last about two hours.
"It's just a great family event," said Kim Haggarty, co-director and one of the coaches for the club.
There will be two synchronized skate groups. The team Volant — including skaters Hanna and Kayla Haggarty, Gillian Cook, Clare Franklin, Cassie Wilhelm, Patricia Davie, Kaitlyn Espinosa and Heather Nereson — will perform to a medley of Adele songs.
There also is a mini team Volant — including skaters Amanda Perlman, Tasha Getten, Sage Turek, Mariah Walker, Alison Famulare, Soren Brockway and Natasha Curzon — that will perform.
Soda Creek Elementary School fourth-grader Jordan Broyhill, Steamboat Springs Middle School seventh-grader Cook and Steamboat Springs High School senior Espinosa will have solo performances. Coach Ani Cesario will be skating a solo performance, as well.
The Steamboat Springs Figure Skating Club began in 1994 and is coached by Courtney Gill, Haggarty and Cesario.
Gill has coached for 16 years and skated for the renowned synchronized team the Haydenettes. Haggarty has coached for more than 25 years, and Cesario has 17 years of competitive experience.
For most of the skaters, this is their one big competition of the year. Most have been practicing four or five days each week for months in anticipation of the annual show.
"Most of the kids work all year long just for this show," Haggarty said. "They skate all year just for the show."
