Cool Off at the National Theatre on Ice Competition
More than 75 figure skating teams from around the nation will converge on the Pelham Civic Center June 30-July 3 for the ninth annual National Theatre on Ice (TOI) Competition. The event will be judged by U.S. Figure Skating judges and programs will be evaluated on technical merit and presentation with emphasis on originality, costuming, artistry and musicality.
TOI is a form of competitive figure skating that is popular in Europe, where it is known as Ballet on Ice. It combines the grace of figure skating with the excitement of theater and dance. Teams consist of between eight and 30 skaters. The TOI Birmingham event is hosted by the Birmingham Figure Skating Club and the Pelham Civic Complex and Ice Arena. Daily tickets purchased at the door are only $15. Learn more about the event at www.2016nationaltoi.com. †
