Hi everyone ! This has been a busy skating weekend for me with one thing and another. That’s not going to change  this coming week with a cool skating show coming to Peterborough – Rock The Ice III.

It is the brainchild of Elvis Stojko and Daniel Weiss and I decided to track Elvis Stojko down yesterday in Mexico for a chat. (Sadly the video didn’t record for some reason 🙁 )

He is excited to be coming to Canada and is open about why shows are fun for the skaters as well as the audience:

‘A show gives the skater a chance to open up and connect and for people to get to know their favourite skater. They can see an aspect of skating you don’t usually get to see if you  only watch it on TV;  it is all the same – you don’t get the idea of speed or the athletic and physical attributes – in a show you get a real sense of that.’

Thanks to Gerard Chataigneau for the great action shot that is acting as a video!

The cast reads like a who’s who of skating: Elvis Stojko, Kurt Browning, Jamie Sale and David Pelletier, Joannie Rochette, Sinead and John Kerr and many more….If you want more info here is the link to buy tickets: https://tickets.memorialcentre.ca/Online/
