SSFSC holding annual figure-skating show


On Saturday night, figure skaters from across Colorado will take over the Howelsen Ice Arena.

The Steamboat Springs Figure Skating Club is holding its annual spring show at 7 p.m. Saturday, showcasing local talent and some of the Front Range's top juniors.

This year's show is titled "Spring Review" and costs $5 for everyone.

"We picked all these cute numbers from old shows," SSFSC coach Courtney Gill said. "There will be 14 girls from beginners to graduating seniors doing solos."

The graduating seniors this year are Kelsey Comeau, Kelly Ascher, Allison Lewis, Mackenzie Frank and Jessie Cannon.

In addition to solo performances, the local synchronized skate teams, Team Volant and Mini-Team Volant, will perform their competition numbers, which received high marks from judges at recent competitions. Team Volant also will be performing an Elvis Presley number.

"I heard it over lunch and knew it would make an amazing group number," Gill said.

Team LaFuria, a national senior competitive synchronized skate team, also is scheduled to perform its competition number. One of its members is former SSFSC member Katie Krueger, who is now a freshman at the University of Colorado.

Scattered among solo and group performances from local skaters are programs from national guest skaters from the Front Range. Rory Grant, Carolyn Miller, Casey Burk and Brittany Bowlen headline the list. Miller competed at junior nationals.

The "Spring Review" Ice Show will include a dedication of the new sound system installed several weeks ago. The project cost $38,000, Gill said, and Saturday's figure skating show will be the first performance using it.

A small plaque will be given honoring the primary contributors: the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. Fund Grant, the Steamboat Springs City Council, Tom Fox of Fox Construction Inc., the Haggarty Family and the SSFSC.
