Skating carnival showcases local skills

Intricate and difficult maneuvers show hard work of performers

By K.A. Pendergast

March 8 saw some Clearwater skaters show off their skills and enjoyment of the sport for the figure-skating crowd in the annual exhibition at the North Thompson Sportsplex.

The skill levels went from Baby Shark pre-can skate to some solo performances. There were spins, kicks, twirls, turns, jumps and even splits.

The many skaters showed some main common themes and those were grace and style.

Some intricate and difficult maneuvers proved how hard the performers worked all year and the routines were fun and entertaining with Just Dance kicking off the program after the National Anthem sung by Hannah Panko.

The program was read by Shelley Sim and the skaters were coached by Chelsea Hindle and Sarah Thorne.
