UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Skating Club is putting on it’s semi-annual Carnival on Sat. April 2nd!
The Carnival is a fun skating event put on by the club for the kids of the skateclub with Uxbridge Skating Club Alumni returning to put on a show along side any current members that would like to perform.
The theme for this year’s show is “Let’s Have a Party”. Hometown starlet Mackenzie Bent and her Ice Dance partner Dmitre Razgulajevs will showcase their dance just weeks after performing at the Junior Worlds!
Mackenzie and Dmitre got together as partners last spring and found quick success, winning Junior Nationals in Ice Dance, this past January and just last week placed 9th at the World Juniors in Hungary to maintain their top 10 position. Mackenzie is from the Uxbridge Skating Club and is currently attending the University of Toronto. Dmitre’s father is a Russian Olympian and shares the responsibility of coaching the pair.
There will also be several special guests and alumni performing, including: Rebecca Rogers, a Ryerson Varsity team member, who also grew up in the Uxbridge Skating Club. Another special guest is Jaqueline Smith, a member of the Meraki Synchro Skate team, who performed in Austria and finished in 3rd. They also finished 3rd in the Canadian Nationals.
Other special guests include: Josie Foster, a coach at Uxbridge Skating Club, Elizabeth Townsend, a member of the Ice Syre Synchro Team that also competed at Nationals.
The Carnival will be taking place at the Uxbridge Community Arena on April 2nd at 2pm.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children and seniors.
Darlene Suchy, President of the Uxbridge Skating Club says, “This is a great event to see the amazing local talent we have in the community. Come out and support local talent. It’s always nice for children to see that with some hard work and determination, they can make it far in whatever endeavor they choose.”
