Skate Dance Dream is unique where it not only offers cutting edge performances by professionals, but also gives local aspiring skaters and dancers the chance of a lifetime: to perform with and learn from these Stars. The show fuses two of America’s favorite arts, figure skating and dance, on one united stage, showcasing local figure skaters and dancers within the community at each tour stop. The show is designed to motivate and inspire by blending Stars with the next generation of talent in special group numbers and event activities with the Stars.
"With the rise in popularity of dance in recent years and the Winter Olympic season for figure skating concluding, this show offers fans and young performers alike, an up-close and personal experience with some top names in the entertainment industry," says Parker Pennington, Executive Producer of Skate Dance Dream and U.S. National Champion figure skater at four different levels. "It’s not everyday that you get to see this caliber of talent combined with the future stars of tomorrow. It’s a show that will leave all of us feeling young and inspired."
