The event will showcase some of the top figure skaters and dancers in the world, including Richard Dornbush, the 2011 U.S. men's silver medalist and world team member, and national competitor Sean Rabbitt. Ashley Valerio, a top finalist from season five of Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," will also be featured. (Star cast is subject to change.) Joining the stars will be the best local dancers and figure skaters from such places as the Dance Stop Studio and the Gilmour Figure Skating Club.
Skate Dance Dream is a unique, interactive and fun show that blends the worlds of figure skating and dance. The shows are designed for aspiring young amateur skaters and dancers, giving them the chance to perform with and learn from the stars they see on television. The participants will have a two-day experience filled with rehearsals, seminars, workshops, meet and greets with the stars, and concluding with the show.
"The main goal in developing this show and future Skate Dance Dream shows is to help figure skating and dance grow within local communities across the country," Pennington said.
Tickets are on sale now: $12 for general admission, $28 for on-ice seating and $45 for on-ice table seating. (Ticket prices vary at the door.)
