February 2017 New Business

Fernie Skating Club 

The Fernie Skating Club is producing yet another fabulous ice show this year, February 17 and 18 at the Fernie Memorial Arena. In the past, the club has focused on storybook themes. This year the producers are branching out with DreamSkate – An Interactive Ice Show. Based on the dreams of seven of the club’s skaters who are graduating from high school this year, it all begins at a slumber party where the girls fall asleep and each have a dream.

Being an interactive show, the audience is asked to dress the part in pyjamas and to bring their favourite stuffy. There will be surprises in the audience, and you might want to bring your dancing shoes.

The show includes the entire club and a lot of hours are spent preparing this event, including many volunteer. All money raised goes towards keeping the Skate Canada programming available to our community.
