"What is Theater On Ice?" You ask?
Theater 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 8 and 30 skaters. Each year, teams choose a theme and develop a theater/dance routine to their own compilation of music. Teams use scenery, props and costumes in order to tell a story to the audience. Solo skating is discouraged, but is permitted in limited amounts if it enhances the overall telling of the program's story. The programs are judged by qualified U.S. Figure Skating Association judges and are evaluated on technical merit and presentation with emphasis on originality, costuming, artistry, and musicality.
Additionally, and most importantly, Theater On Ice is a competitive team sport that offers fun, friendship, and the camaraderie that is so often lacking for individual figure skaters!
Additional information regarding our team and TOI, in general, can be obtained here. We invite you to come and participate in our weekly training program, which includes 30 minutes of choreographic off ice exercise and one hour of skating. We are always looking to expand our team, and we welcome any interested parties to join us! Please call 1-732-98BRAVO (982-7286) for more information.
