GATHER + SKATE
Saturday, January 26, 2019, 6 to 9 pm
Mark your calendar for a fun night to gather as a community to skate and give back to those in need! Rink Services Group is making a donation to cover the ice time in order to collect food for the local food pantry, GATHER.
GATHER is seeing an increase in the number of families needing help due to the government shutdown.
Bring a donation of a non-perishable food item and skate for free!
(Skate rentals provided for those in need, too.)
A big thank you to RSG for sponsoring this fun evening. #thisiswhywegather

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 judges -- including JoJo Starbuck, three-time United States pair skating champion and two-time Olympian, and Elin Schran, founder of JoySkate and performer in many shows including Ice Capades -- awards points, to determine the Seacoast Skating with the Stars champion.
