Skating club stages ‘80s-themed carnival

DRAYTON - The Drayton and District Skating Club concluded another successful skating season, wrapping up with its annual skating carnival, themed “Totally 80s!”

The show featured a variety of musical accompaniments from the era, such as Michael Jackson’s Beat It and Thriller, Dolly Parton’s Nine to Five, Footloose and many others.  The music had many audience members, organizers and performers dancing and singing along with the numbers, organizers noted in a press release.  

“We would like to acknowledge and thank the wonderful support of our local community. We could not put on such a fabulous show without the support of so many of our local businesses and community members. As well, we are grateful for our ongoing leadership of our club’s skating coaches,” the club states.

This year’s program choreographer Carolyn Borges, along with the coordinated assistance of club coaches Kelly Culp, Jeannette Shaw, Micayla Shantz and many program assistants, “did a wonderful job of inspiring the young skaters to skate to the music of the 80s,” stated organizers, who offered congratulations to all skaters, coaches, sponsors, families and volunteers who worked together to create the show.

The final club events of the year will include Skate Canada StarSkate testing on March 8, as well as the annual general meeting and awards night on April 7.

All levels of skaters, from PreCanskaters up to StarSkaters, are encouraged to attend in order to acknowledge the successes of the year.  

A variety of annual club awards, badges and carnival photos will be available.
