Virginia Ice Theatre is gearing up for the 2022 National Theatre On Ice competition, taking place in Wichita, Kansas.
As part of the competition, each team will have a Free Program, and the adult, intermediate and preliminary teams also have a Choreographic Exercise (the “short” program). Here’s a little more about the CE:
The Choreographic Exercise consists of three required “axes,” all of which must be included in the program.
Theme: The theme is the purpose of the program. It is the unifying concept and can tell a story (narrative) or be abstract. It should have meaning and support the Choreographic Process and Gesture. For this season, the theme is “Contemporary.”
Choreographic Process: A set of movements which are performed by individuals, small groups and the whole team. For this season, the choreographic process is “Flocking.”
Gesture/Body Movement: The gesture is the type of body movements the skaters are to perform individually and in groups. For this season, the gesture is “Acceleration.”
Virginia Ice Theatre’s 50/50 raffle at Cardinal Classic netted more than $285 for the team. The drawing was held Sunday, April 3, at Prince William Ice Center. Then the winner, Iniya, donated her winnings back to the team!
Thank you to all volunteers and to those who bought tickets!
Please join us for a VIT party on Sunday, July 18 at 1 pm at Burke Lake Park Shelter A.
Food and beverages will be provided and the event will be held rain or shine.
Burke Lake Park is located at 7315 Ox Rd, Fairfax Station VA 22039. Admission is free for Fairfax County residents – please be prepared to show your ID. Out of county residents will need to give a ticket at the park entrance to avoid the $10 fee (I will provide these to you in advance).
