Steamboat Springs Five figure skaters will have detention Saturday for misbehavior, but they will be the center of attention for a grandstand full of paying customers.
The five skaters, members of the Steamboat Springs Figure Skating Club, will reenact scenes from the 1985 coming-of-age movie "The Breakfast Club" as part of this year's "Movie Moments on Ice," an annual ice show and silent auction fund-raiser.
The number is choreographed with skaters jumping over and dancing with chairs, figure skating instructor Kim Haggarty said.
The local skaters, ages 4 to 18, will be joined on the ice by guest performers Ashley Clark and Kelly Smith.
Clark is living in town temporarily while she takes a seasonal break from her job with a cruise-ship ice show. Clark formerly skated in an ice show at Disneyland, Haggarty said. Kelly recently graduated from the University of Denver and will be joining Clark in the cruise ship ice show.
The show will also feature Steamboat's synchronized skating team, Team Volant.
Members of the Pee Wee Hockey Team will perform a number to "Top Gun."
The figure skating club chose the movie theme as a way to introduce performances all age groups can appreciate. For the younger audience members, skaters will perform pieces inspired by "Lilo and Stitch," "Shrek," "Monsters, Inc." and "Anastasia."
Older audience members should enjoy the pieces from "The Blues Brothers" and "Animal House," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "The Breakfast Club."
Skating coaches Haggarty, Courtney Gill, Clark and Gena Fischer choreographed all numbers.
"One of my favorites is from 'Moulin Rouge' to the song 'Lady Marmalade' performed by our highest level skaters doing double jumps and spins," Haggarty said.
Costumes for the show were provided by Celebrations.
"For the 'Monsters, Inc.' piece, we have a big, blue, furry Sully costume and the official costumes for Mike and Little Boo," Haggarty said. "The costumes are amazing."
Katie Krueger, Alex Morrison and 4-year-old Ellese Lupori perform in the "Monsters, Inc."
"The Blues Brothers" piece will be performed by Laura Holthausen and Amber Sachs, dressed as the Blues Brothers.
"They come out and do this step out together, then skate to 'Shake a Tailfeather,'" Haggarty said.
"It's fun. The kids get really into it. Personally, I think this is one of the funnest shows in this town, and figure skating is a great youth sport."
This is Haggarty's 11th year with the figure skating club. "It's gotten more and more competitive over the years," she said. "In the beginning, they couldn't really skate very well and the shows were what they were, but the quality of the skating has really gone up."
Proceeds from the ice show will be used to pay for ice time. Figure skaters pay $800 for the season, which runs from September to April. The club pays $120 an hour for ice time that adds up to $40,000 a year, Haggarty said.
