ABOUT THEATRE on ICE .... Theatre on Ice is the United States Figure Skating Association's newest competitive figure skating event. Teams are judged, not just on dramatic performance, but also on the quality of their skating both as individuals and as a team. Each year the number of teams entering the competition has grown and the quality of the programs, props, and standards of skating have increased dramatically. The team is coached by Shanyn Vallon and Taunya Peper Blanco. Shanyn is a PSA Master Rated National and International Choreographer, Former featured performer of Ice Capades and Holiday on Ice, World National & Junior Olympic Choreographer, & Figure Skating Professional.

Congratulations to the Houston Ice Theatre Skaters for winning their first National Championship.

In addition to these medals, the team also took home the award for Best Prop and Scenery Design, one of four special theatrical awards presented at the event. This is a testiment to the hard work and creative efforts of the parents of these talented skaters who made this set come to life.
And if that's not enough, this year's stellar performance earned the HITS team the honor of representing the United States at the first-ever World Championship of Theatre on Ice to be held April 22-25, 2010 in Toulouse, France. C'est magnifique!!
