The community is invited to participate in the week-long celebration of ice dancing and engage in the joy, flight and flow of skating. “We’re thrilled to welcome IDI to Stowe and to introduce to our audiences this incredible dance form which elevates skating from sport to art,” says Hope Sullivan, Spruce Peak Arts Executive Director.
Most people think of skating as family entertainment like Ice Capades or Disney on Ice. IDI shares the entertainment factor with these shows along with celebrating the beauty of ensemble skating with a company of world-class skaters. Ice dance is an expressive way to use your body for movement and fitness and is great for all ages. It offers a fun and surprisingly accessible way of developing balance and body control and improving communication through enjoyable dance exercise. Ice dancing, with its precision footwork, intricate dance move and high speeds, can be enjoyed by all – students, families, artists, educators, ice skaters, lovers of contemporary dance and those interested in learning about it!
Open to all experience levels, there will be many opportunities to get involved in the IDI residency, with events taking place each weekday at either the Spruce Peak Rink or Stowe Arena.
The public is invited to watch Ice Dance International’s rehearsals at either Stowe Arena or Spruce Peak Rink throughout the week. Stay tuned for details on their schedule or to reserve your IDI experience.
The IDI Residency and performances are made possible through the support of the New England Foundation for the Arts, Friends of Stowe Jackson Arena, Town of Stowe Recreation Commission, Spruce Peak Resort Association, Spruce Peak Community & Education Fund and lodging sponsor: Commodore’s Inn.
