Cedar Valley Figure Skating Club prepares for ice show Sunday, December 8th


More than 40 ice skaters with the Cedar Valley Figure Skating Club are hard at work at Young Arena in Waterloo preparing for this year's ice show.

"I think we've got a really good show going. We've got some talented skaters. We're doing a show a lot of people know," said Skating Director Abby Loeffelholz.

This year's show is The Grinch on Ice.

"A few years ago we put together a list of ideas of shows we wanted to do sometime, and The Grinch was last on the that list. We've decided to tackle it this year, and it's turning out really well," said Loeffelholz.

Katie Roach is cast as The Grinch.

"The Grinch is an old story everyone knows. It's fun to see the characters come to life," said Katie Roach.

Roach started skating when she was six years old, but she thinks this will be her last ice show.

"This is probably going to be one of my favorite years because it's my last year because I'm a senior," said Roach.

The show includes dozens of skaters, ranging in age from four to 35. The Cedar Valley Figure Skating Club started practicing October first.

"Lots and lots of practice. Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Thursday are our practice days," said Roach.

Something new this year, the Young Arena video board is going to be used during the performance to show video clips.

The Grinch on ice is Sunday, December 8th at 3 p.m. at Young Arena in Waterloo.

The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
