Eau Claire Figure Skating Club:

The Eau Claire Figure Skating Club is an independent, non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide quality skating instruction, practice and advancement of its members in the Chippewa Valley area. The Learn to Skate program is open to everyone in Chippewa Valley and it provides lessons throughout the year. Most club skaters began figure skating through our Learn to Skate Program and have progressed through Junior Club and move on to the Senior Club. Each year we offer three events. First, we held our first annual Basic Skills competition in November for skaters involved in our Basic Skills through pre- prelimary levels. Second, we hold a competition that draws around 500 skaters and their families to the Eau Claire area. This competition held in March allows regional skaters an opportunity to test their skills. Our third event is our annual ice show drawing nearly 1600 spectators. This year’s ice show will be held in April and it will be a lot of fun. This event gives us an opportunity to entertain many families and friends in the Chippewa Valley area by showcasing all club members and Learn to Skate kids who wish to participate. We have a variety of numbers from a large opening with all the club skaters to solos, pairs, guest skaters and the always loved hockey number.

Why this theme: We wanted to be able to provide a lot of different styles of music for the audience to enjoy. Broadway cover so many different types of songs that connect to people.

The girls like the show because the majority of the year figure skating is an individual sport and often the girls compete with one another. The show allows the skaters to skate as a group and have more camaraderie.
