Seniors perform one last time at Bismarck’s biggest ice skating show
The ladies of the Bismarck Figure Skating Club are providing a mystery-themed experience at the movies during their annual ice show this weekend. 5 seniors will be performing in this year’s show and for some of these young women, this weekend’s show will be their last.
“This show is really important because it’s my last show and I’m really excited to go out there and make the best of it.” said Scott.
The Capitol Ice synchronized skating team will perform their 2022 program that led them to the national championship earlier this month. Senior Riley Scott has been skating for 10 years.
“I learned a lot of life lessons that I will use outside of skating. Just working hard and putting the time and effort into something because your hard work will help you achieve your goals,” Scott said.
Madelynne is also a senior and she says ice skating is an important part of life for the girls on the team.
They practice up to 2 hours a day.
“Ice skating is a way of life for most of these girls because it’s a way for us to be actively involved in our community with a sport we love to play.” Fuchs said.
Although this is their last show, both girls think it’s good for young girls to experience being part of a team like the Bismarck Figure Skating Club.
“It’s really sad to have spent my whole life with these people and I grew up with them, so it’s really sad to see it all go so soon.” says Scott
You can catch the ice show tonight at 7 p.m. or tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the VFW Sports Center.
Tickets are $10 per person and children under 4 are free.
