Salmon Arm Skating Club dazzles audience with Christmas show

Full suite of skating club talent on display in annual performance

The Salmon Arm Skating Club dazzled a packed house at the Shaw Centre on Dec. 14 as they hit the ice in fine form to deliver their annual Christmas skating show.

Several groups of skaters performed routines set to the tune of classic Christmas songs, including a special back-to-back routine featuring the Who’s from Whoville and several club members’ dads skating as Grinches.

The event has been held for many years, with announcer Myron Crown reminiscing on close to 30 years of attending the performances.

From the graceful, high-flying routines of the senior skaters to the more subtle show from the younger groups, all the talent the Salmon Arm Skating Club has developed over the years was on full display during the Christmas performance.
