Despite seeming aesthetically opposed, both figure skating and ice hockey require dexterity, strength, and grace. Regardless, when I heard about an upcoming event that combines the two types of athletes in a choreographed performance, I pictured a funny beauty-and-the-beast-type mash-up.
On Sunday, December 16, at 4 p.m., Premier Skating Academy and the Wease Cares Children's Fund will present a choreographed figure-skating program entitled "Let it Snow." The Rochester Americans hockey team, Amerks alumni, and local college hockey players will perform with the choreographed figure skaters.
The event will take place at The Sports Centre at MCC (2700 Brighton-Henrietta Townline Road). Tickets cost $5 and all proceeds will benefit Wease Cares Children's Fund. Purchase tickets ahead of time, or the day of the show at the front desk at The Sports Centre. For more information, call 424-4625 or visit tscmcc.com.
