Spectacular musical show on ice by young skaters.

AROUND 60 local children will be showcasing their skating talents in a spectacular musical show.

The Million Dreams musical ice show will feature aspiring figure skaters aged three to 18, who will perform solo and group performances synchronised to music by a local team of musicians.

Spearheaded by Bahrain-based figure skating club Ice Breakers and BelCanto vocal studio, the synchronised show will be staged on June 9 from 2pm to 4pm at Funland on Al Fateh Corniche.

"Viewers can expect to enjoy the magical moments on stage by watching the young performers demonstrate their talents and artistic passion," said Ice Breakers ice skating coach Michele Ruh.

"Even though we're very much separate clubs, this is a joint project with BelCanto vocal studio that we've recently initiated.

"It is the third singing and skating show we've done, with our previous shows being performed to pre-recorded music.

"There will be a variation of music and a lot of Disney music, even though it's not a Disney show.

"It's definitely a fun, family event where we try to give back to the local community by showcasing what the children have been working on for months, and years for some.

"It will be a magical show where the skaters will be performing to different songs."

Ms Ruh, who has been a coach at Ice Breakers for three years, said the young skaters have been training for the last five months in preparation for the third-edition of the show.

A total of 35 group and solo routines will take place, featuring a range of internationally recognised skaters alongside budding performers.

"The students are of various ages, the oldest being 18 and youngest three, so the levels of performances will be different as well," explained Ms Ruh.

"There are some who have just joined while others have been performing for years.

"There are a couple of skaters who have been practising for years and have competed internationally in Abu Dhabi, so people can definitely expect a wide range of talents and styles.

"A lot of the skaters have also chosen their music based on what they like dancing to, so the show is definitely geared to the skaters' taste and passion."

Tickets for the show are priced at BD3 per person and can be purchased at Funland.
