    THEATRE ON ICE
      »  Figure Skating  »  Theatre on Ice

    Theatre On Ice (TOI) is a form of competitive figure skating that 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 30 skaters. Solo skating is discouraged, but is permitted in limited amounts if it enhances the overall telling of the program’s story. Skaters, both competitive and noncompetitive, can learn and grow on a theater team. Best of all, a team can draw club skaters together and increase club spirit.

    Benefits to the Skater
    • Gives the skater more confidence when performing at competitions and shows by bringing an emotional spirit into their skating 
    • Provides skaters a chance to develop the dramatic side of their skating 
    • Offers skaters the opportunity to be part of a team while continuing to use their technical skills 
    • Provides the skater with a chance to make new friends 
    • Performances in the RMU Holiday Skating Spectacular, PPG Light Up Night, Schenley Park Ice Show, South Park Ice show and more!
