Rock The Ice is back for its 5th year in Peterborough, making its way to the Peterborough Memorial Centre (PMC) for a one-night only January 3rd performance date. We know it’ll be another awesome performance, and this is certain to make for an amazing Christmas or birthday gift! Here are 14 great reasons why you should attend...
1. This is your chance to see 3-time World Champion and current Olympic Silver Medalist Patrick Chan (aka @PChiddy) in an incredible intimate and entertaining atmosphere as he makes his Peterborough debut.
2. Rock the Ice V offers you the chance to see world class talent with an unparalleled scope for athletic and artistic diversity in skating styles in one show.
3. This is a great and affordable night out for your family right after the hustle and bustle of Christmas! A night at PMC your family will never forget!!
4. Date Night: For couples, it's a great opportunity to have your first real date night of 2015! So get your tix, and start booking those babysitters now!
5. These producers know how to spoil their fans. FIVE of the best male performers in the world will share the spotlight. What better way to commemorate Rock the Ice FIVE?
6. Jeffrey Buttle (2006 Olympic Bronze Medalist) and Sunglasses at Night, on ice, is a thing. Seriously.
7. If you haven't seen the PMC transformed for a figure skating event, wait until you see this! (Professional lighting goes a long way, especially with a sheet of ice as the canvas!)
8. The man, the myth, the legend... 4-time world champion Kurt Browning (aka "Gene Kelly on Ice") is performing! We’ve been his biggest fan since his cameo in Ready or Not!
9. From the small screen to live in person, these skaters are who you have watched for years represent our great country. O Canada!
10. This is a big city, exclusive event in our own backyard!
11. Spandex. Lots and lots of spandex!
12. Because everyone can dance, but not everyone can ice dance. These athletes will make the impossible possible with the help of only two small blades.
13. After watching her persevere through family tragedy at the 2010 Olympics, Joannie Rochette captured our country's heart (a Bronze Medal too), and will absolutely melt yours!
14. Did we mention Patrick Chan? We did, eh? Well we want to again! Folks, he is returning to competition next year so this is literally your one and only chance to see one of the most masterful skaters of all time!
