East Kilbride’s ice skating clubs joined forces last week to wow crowds in the town centre with their spectacular Christmas ice show.
Parents, friends and shoppers at East Kilbride Ice Rink enjoyed a real treat as skaters as young as four, from both East Kilbride Ice Figure Skating and Olympia Clubs, showed off their skating skills on Saturday morning and they thoroughly enjoyed the reaction from the crowd.
Fantastic group performances were displayed by both clubs which were put together by their coaches, Yvonne Cameron and Silvanna Cameron from East Kilbride IFSC, and Leanne Collins, Diane Dewar, Lorraine Allison and Leanne Whiteside from the Olympia FSC.
The solo performances were stunning and every skater worked extremely hard to make sure the show was a huge success.
From EKIFSC there were solo performances by Bethany Leslie who skated to “In The Arms of An Angel”, Alanna Church performed to “Hot, Hot, Hot”, Celine Robertson skated to “Pia Jesu,” Ashley Mitchell showed off her repertoire to “Big Bad Voodoo Daddy”, Rachel Smillie skated to “Skyscraper”, April Hunter performed to “French Hip Hop” and Amy Hunter skated to “Beneath Your Beautiful”.
East Kilbride IFSC group performances included “Rockin Robin”, “5-6-7-8”, the Austin Powers theme, “Candy,” “Perfect Year” and “Copacabana”.
Meanwhile, from the Olympia Club, there were solo performances by Olivia Milliken who skated to “Brave”, Ella Prescott who performed to “Pocahontas”, Emily Spratt who showed off her skills to “Big Bow Wow”, while Lewis Gibson skated to “Santa Claus” by Michael Buble. Gemma Fergusson also performed, skating to “Skyfall,” as Louise McMahon skated to “The Power of Love” with Amy Wiggins using “That Man”, Mia Gallagher performing “To Be Italian”,and Ellie Glen skating to “The Wizard Wheezes”.
Kelly Carlin performed her competition programme, Ryan Cuthell used his Spanish programme and Molly Mitchell-Knight performed her new competition programme.
Olympia FSC group performances included numbers from the “Happy Feet” soundtrack performed by skaters aged 4-8, and then “Swan Lake” which then changed into “Gangnam Style”, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”, followed by a James Bond Medley to end the show.
Both clubs would like to thank Peter, Irene and all staff at EK Ice rink for their hard work and help to organise the event.
They also wished to give a massive thanks to the parents and committee members for their incredible support.
