Ice Theatre of New York

 

You may remember that the very first post on the Rainbo Edge Blog was about Ice Theatre of New York and the terrible damage they suffered from Hurricane Sandy about this time last year. They lost their offices and their rink at Chelsea Piers. Well, we are happy to report that a year later, they back and as as strong as ever!

"Since its establishment in 1984, the Ice Theatre of New York has combined the best of ice skating, dance and theater to create cutting edge performances that represent the very best New York's creative community has to offer." - Mayor Michael Bloomberg

Tonight is the opening night of the stunning show ICE:DANCE with 14 top skating stars including US Men’s Champion Ryan Bradley, 7-time British Dance Champion John Kerr, World Team Members Eve Chalom, Kim Navarro and Brent Bommentre; skating a program dedicated to elevate the art of Ensemble Ice Dance.
