Stars on Ice

For our anniversary Hubby had bought us tickets to go see Stars on Ice.  We'd never gone and I was so excited and it was SO worth it!  He ended up enjoying it just as much as I.  We had good seats, I loved how there was no boards up around the rink and there were people sitting at the same level as the ice, so it felt really personal and you could see well, and the performers interacted with the audience.  They didn't seem embarrassed or upset the (rare) times they messed up and fell.  I guess I am so used to watching figure skating on TV during Olympics or other competitions that I was surprised and happy at how relaxed and outgoing the skaters were when I'm used to seeing them serious.  My favourite was (and is) Patrick Chan but I also loved all 3 of the couples.  And Kurt Browning performed to Gene Kelly's Singin' in the Rain and there's just no way you can go wrong with that.  The show was really a performance and the skaters are true entertainers.  I think we might just be hooked into going every year!  Oh, and the show was sponsored by Lindt and so we all got chocolates :)  Here's some pics; they aren't very good and of course don't do justice because you can't hear the music or see the movement, but hopefully it'll still give you an idea of the fun we had.

Me excited before the show starts :)

Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, Kurt Browning, Jeffrey Buttle, Patrick Chan

I loved the big groups of the whole cast.
Meagan Duhamel & Eric Radford - this one was really neat how they used that blue scarf (currently tied around his waist) throughout the routine.
Sinead & John Kerr - loved this Scottish one to bagpipe music!!

And of course during their bows at the end he had to show the audience he was, indeed, wearing something beneath his kilt ;D

Patrick Chan :) 

Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir

Kurt Browning skating to Gene Kelly's Singin' in the Rain - with real water raining down!

The last performance, with the whole cast.  Loved the outfits!
