Skaters of all age groups and skill levels put their talents on display on Saturday night for the Prince Rupert Figure Skating Club’s year-end gala, Candyland.
The evening alternated between soloists and group performances, with music ranging from classical to modern hits like What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction to music from eras past like Tutti Frutti by Little Richard. Over the course of the night many of the performers pulled double or even triple duty, taking to the ice as soloists and as part of a group.
The show began with a solo by senior skater Mikaela Ward, who set the stage for a night of great performances. During the first half the crowd was treated to solos from Amy McNabb, Kennedy Ferguson, Emily Mair, Renata Venturini, Destiny Salm and Skye Olmstead, who closed out the first half, and to group performances that ranged from five senior skaters performing to Lady Marmalade to a large ensemble the youngest members of the program skating in their first gala performance to the classic Lollipop by the Cordettes.
In the second half soloists included Mikayla Rose, Brianna Hagen, Cassidy Campbell, Cassandra Groves and Becca Phillips while group performances included the Jr. Test Line skating to Day-O to the Jr. and Sr. Test lines combining for a performance to Candyman by Christina Aguilera.
The night ended with all of the members of the Prince Rupert Figure Skating Club taking to the ice for the grand finale.
