Theatre On Ice

_DSC0638Theatre On Ice (TOI) is a form of competitive figure skating that is fairly new to our rink! It is popular in Europe, where it is known as Ballet on Ice. It combines the grace of figure skating with the excitement of theater and dance. Teams consist of between eight and thirty skaters. The programs are judged by U.S. Figure Skating judges – evaluated on technical merit and presentation with emphasis on originality, costuming, artistry and musicality.

 

Training usually begins in September and concludes at the National event in June but we take skaters all season long. Ice Theatre of the Rockies now fields two teams at the South Suburban facilities; an Open team and a Senior Team. It is a fun and challenging new facet to skating that allows skaters to be part of a theatrical skating team while improving their individual skating and performance skills.

The Ice Theatre of the Rockies teams are lead by an amazing group of coaches who are highly qualified in their fields. Here is our current staff:
