This year’s professional ice skating show follows the format of ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ Each local Portsmouth ‘star’ is paired with professional skater to perform a 90-second routine in addition to individual performances by the professionals. The volunteer skaters are being coached by Ice Dance International and Labrie Family Skate at Puddle Dock Pond artistic director Doug Webster. The IDI professional skaters practice with their partners for a week before the show on February 9th. The complete show also includes performances by professional IDI skaters. A panel of local judges, including JoJo Starbuck, three-time United States pair skating champion and two-time Olympian, and Elin Schran, ice dance choreographer and performer with experience in many shows including Ice Capades, awards points, to determine one Seacoast Skating with the Stars winning team.
