The event will showcase some of the top figure skaters and dancers in the world, including Ryan Di Lello, ABC's Dancing with the Stars professional dancer, Season 9 all-star and Season 6 top-six finalist from Fox's So You Think You Can Dance"; and Ashleigh Di Lello, Season 6 top-five finalist from So You Think You Can Dance. It also features 2012 U.S. ice dance pewter medalists Lynn Kriengkrairut and Logan Giulietti-Schmitt. (Star cast is subject to change. Joining the stars will be the best local dancers and figure skaters, including the Clinton Figure Skating Club and the Mary Lourdes Academy of Dance.)
Skate Dance Dream is a show production experience that fuses figure skating and dance. The show gives local aspiring skaters and dancers the chance of a lifetime: performing with and learning from the stars. Over the course of show weekends, participants attend meet-and-greets, seminars, workshops and rehearsals with the stars, culminating with the performance in the show alongside them.
"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. "We are thrilled to bring the show to New York and look forward to the future of the tour."
