World-class skaters ready to perform in Rockport, Portland

Ice dance performing arts company, Ice Dance International, made its second leg of a 12-stop tour at the Piscataquis County Ice Arena.

DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — World-class skaters took to the ice to perform in Dover-Foxcroft.

Ice dance performing arts company, Ice Dance International, made its second leg of a 12-stop tour at the Piscataquis County Ice Arena.

The show, “Grace: The Power of Dance on Ice,” features ten world-class figure skaters, including Grand Prix finalist and two-time U.S. champion Alissa Czisny and U.S. Open champions Kseniya Ponomaryova and Collin Brubaker.

This tour marks the eighth season for the organization and the first series of performances since COVID shut them down in 2020.

The performers hope “Grace” will help bring communities together after the pandemic and get them thinking about what the word grace means individually and to those around us.

“I hope people take away from this show, not just a great skating spectacle, but something that transports them and makes them feel something deeply and connects them more deeply to their community and also to themselves”, Douglas Webster, executive and artistic director of Ice Dance International, said.

Ice Dance International will also perform “Grace” in Portland on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Troubh Ice Arena and in Rockport on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Midcoast Recreation Center.

“I always find that watching a live event of any kind, whether it’s music, theater, dance or skating, I find inspiring. And you never know what can inspire you, so you have to go out and meet people, see things and get inspired. said Alissa Czisny.
