Reach for the Sky Rink All Stars Headed to USFS Showcase Nationals

Sky Rink's longest running artistic ensemble team, "Reach for the Sky Rink All Stars" are leaving in less than a week for the 2014 USFS Showcase Nationals in Los Angeles at the Pickwick Ice Arena, August 8th through the 10th.  The team, based at Sky Rink, is comprised of 15 members of the Skating Club of New York.  The girls qualified last February with a second place finish at the SCNY's Competition in Theatrical Showcase last February with a comedic version of Chicago's Cell Block Tango.  Coached by Sky Rink staff professional Marni Halasa, the team won a bronze medal at last year's National Showcase Competition in Cape Cod in the Production Team category, and is looking forward to this year's competition in Los Angeles. 

"It's not just that we have elevated the team's skating numbers with fantastic props, spectacular theatrics and unique choreography, the girls have a real chemistry together, and are sisters on and off ice the ice," said Halasa. "You can't replace that and it shows when they skate together."

Please join us in wishing them luck at this weekend’s competition!
