The Moose Jaw Skating Club is busy practicing and preparing for their annual ice show at Mosaic Place on Mar. 17, spending hours on the ice working on their moves to wow the audience.

This year’s theme is Hollywood Gala, and coach Bree Campbell promises that there will be some familiar numbers from past and present film that will have everyone in the arena dancing in their seats. Campbell reveals that the show is going for an awards show feel, and all of the skaters involved are excited for the night.

“Every year we try to put on a bigger, better show than we did the year before. Basically, it’s going to mirror image the Oscar Awards,” said Campbell. “I've chosen music that has actually won awards, so its familiar to the audience, so its singalong songs and [ones] that the kids can recognize and kind of get into it, and have a good time skating. So, hopefully this year it shines bright, like our previous years have.”

As the show is a year-end performance for the club, the skaters will be receiving awards highlighting their year skating with the club, and the performances are split into three categories — Best Animated Film, Best Original Song, Best Picture — featuring skaters from all age groups.

Campbell insists that the show is more than just a showcase for Skating Club families; she encourages everyone in the community to come and appreciate the successes of the skaters in the club.

“It’s not [just] for our skating families; we try to put on a show that will entertain everybody. It also is a show that showcases our skating club and our progress through the year, and our sport,” said Campbell. “Our Grade 12 skater this year, Ryann Handley, actually attended the Canada Winter Games last week in Red Deer, so she is an amazing skater, works super hard, and this is her farewell year, so there will be a lot of highlights for Ryann.”

Everyone in the club is excited for the show and to show off the skills they’ve been working hard at, and that excitement has been percolating since the season started.

“[The kids] always are asking, in September when we step on the ice, ‘what's the ice show theme going to be,’ and you have to listen to it all year, asking questions,” said Campbell. “So there's always tons of buzz throughout the year, trying to figure out what the show is going to be and asking questions about it. They love it, it’s the highlight for them.”

Tickets for the show can be purchased at, at any of the ice show practices leading up to the show — the schedule for which can be found on the website — or at the door of the event on Mar. 17.
