(03/12/2012) - Parker Pennington, a U.S. champion at four different levels, will be bringing some of his talented friends to Ohio for Skate Dance Dream - Mentor presented by the Residence Inn Marriott. The figure skating and dance show spectacular will be held Saturday, April 28, at 7:00 p.m. at the Mentor Civic Arena in Mentor, Ohio.

The show boasts a strong cast, including figure skaters Ross Miner, a two-time U.S. bronze medalist and world team member; Lynn Kriengkrairut and Logan Giulietti-Schmitt, the reigning U.S. pewter medalists in ice dancing; and Sean Rabbitt, U.S. senior men's competitor and producer of Skater's Care. Also performing will be Gev Manoukian, a top-10 finalist from FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance." (Star cast is subject to change.) Joining the stars will be more than 100 of the best local figure skating and dance talent, including the Mentor Figure Skating Club and the Dance Stop Studio.

Skate Dance Dream is a unique show that blends the worlds of figure skating and dance. The show takes on an inspirational tone and was created to open doors for skaters and dancers, giving them the chance to perform with and learn from the stars. The participants will get a two-day experience filled with rehearsals, seminars, workshops and "meet and greets" with the stars, concluding with the show performance.

"The main goal in developing this show and future Skate Dance Dream shows is to help skating and dance grow not just within local communities but across the country as a whole," Pennington said.
