65th Anniversary Party!!!

On September 29th Holiday on Ice put on an extravagant party to celebrate their 65 years of shows. All the members of my cast and all the members of the other two shows that are in production were there along with many veteran skaters. In all it was a party of about 300 people! My cast piled into two buses around 3pm and it was about 40 minute ride to this huge theatre venue. Everyone was dressed beautifully and done up nicely, we show folk know how it’s done. I took pictures in the lobby for a little while until we were ushered up onto this balcony with waiters walking around with drinks and treats. Then all 300 of us were taken into this large auditorium for a presentation and speeches. At first it was boring and this guy who really shouldn’t be a public speaker, monotonously went through past years figures and went on and on about statistics and business work. You can imagine how that went over to a bunch of left brained creative show people. After what seemed like forever there was a very interesting power point going over some of Holiday

on Ice history. Apparently there have been 89 Holiday on Ice shows, the first one starting in Ohio on the 25th of December 1943. Since then there have been 320 million spectators so far. Also Holiday plans on expanding further into Asia and Southeastern Europe. After all of that we entered another room with a stage, bar, and dance floor. It was soo crazy! There was a band and champagne and everyone was dancing… mostly to ‘70s disco music but that’s okay. Then a hip hop crew did a little performance that was out of this world and our friend Ryan did an amazing drum solo. All and all it was a wonderful celebration and a crazy night, too bad we had to skate at 8:30 the next morning!
