The theme of this year’s Ice Revue is “Celebrate Good Times.”

The skaters range in age from pre-school to adult.

Solo skaters for this year’s show include Elizabeth Hausmann, Brittney Muzik, Allison Wood, Kendra Donlea, Megan Bristow and Midori VonBargen.
AFSC alumni Aren Armour Dummer will also be back to skate a solo performance during the two shows.
The AFSC is thrilled to also welcome back special guest skater Kiri Baga, who is the 2009 Novice Level U.S. National Champion.
Baga, who is 13 years old, is originally from Duluth. She began skating at the age of 3. Currently, she lives in Prior Lake and skates with the Figure Skating Club of Bloomington.
Her coach is Lorie Wallace-Charbonneau.
In 2007, Baga finished 8th at the intermediate level at the U.S. Nationals, and for the past four years, she has been a State Champion.
Already this year, she competed at the novice level and finished second at the Upper Great Lakes Regional Competition and came in first at the Midwestern Sectional Competition. She also competed in and won the U.S. Figure Skating Championship in Cleveland, Ohio.
During the shows, Baga will be collecting gently-used figure skates that she will be sending to an inner city Washington D.C. figure skating club.
