Skating camp brings in international talent
The Stumptown Ice Arena is hosting ice camps over the next few weeks.
The Glacier Skate International Training Academy holds a camp for kids during the week, and hosts an ice show at the end of the week to show off their talents.
This week's show is called "Prime Time", where they'll be highlighting television shows through the decade.
The group holds skating camps during the week, and brings in competitive ice skaters from around the world to help train and participate in a show at the end of the week.
Chad Goodwin is the Glacier Skate International Training Academy's Director.
He says this is the first year they've held the camps, and the kids are ready to get out on the ice and show everyone their hard work.
"These kids are doing about 10-14 hours of rehearsal throughout the five days on top of their training,” Goodwin says. “So by the end of the week they're pretty tired but they're also very excited to get out there and perform for everybody."
Doors for tonight’s show open at 8:15.
