The local figure skating school will hold their third-annual ice show (1 p.m., Mosaic Place) to conclude their biggest season to date.
"All of the kids are pretty excited," said Naomi Rigetti from the Prairie Edge School of Skating. "It's a big wind-up for the skaters. Everybody gets to do a number.
"We're going to have a little bit of everything in the show. We have boys numbers and CanSkate numbers. We've got numbers highlighting our junior skaters and senior skaters. We have pairs skaters and our synchro skaters too."
This year's ice show is called A Night At The Movies and will feature between 110 and 120 skaters who will take part in a total of 29 numbers.
"All of the music is movie-related and from soundtracks," explained Rigetti.
The format allows the skaters to have some fun doing routines in groups or as a solo. The club's three eight-member synchronized skating teams will also take part.
"Not all of them are group numbers. We have 12 group numbers and then our three synchro teams are performing and then there are some solos." said Rigetti. "Our graduating skaters are doing solos, our competitive skater of the year and our STARskater of the year are doing solos — that sort of thing.
"We have a guest skater coming from Regina, Koen Kucher-Paulmark, he was the Pre-Novice men's champion of Saskatchewan."
There is no cost for admission.
"We're just doing a silver collection and asking for donations. There will be 50-50s and some raffle baskets," said Rigetti.
