Club coach Rob Woodley said the program, held every two years, requires months of effort by volunteers.
Woodley said the coaches and club are very grateful for the hard work of people like event chairperson Karen Nash.
“She has done a tremendous job of organizing volunteers, hosting meetings and generally taking care of a lot of the business and questions that a show with 160 skaters would have,” Woodley said.
“The show would never happen without so many volunteers stepping up and helping,” he added.
“We all want the skaters to have great memories of this event and the tireless work of everyone behind the scenes is rewarded when we see everyone in their costumes in the spotlights with huge smiles on their faces.”
