2024 Annual Carnival: Evolution of Dance

Join the Collingwood Skating Club for an afternoon exploring the evolution of dance on ice, with special guest Fiona Bombardier, this year’s senior women’s national bronze medalist.

Siyul Bella Back and Gavin Mahoney will also be skating in this year’s show. They are this year’s national champions in the novice division and have been skating together since 2021.

Featuring 150 beginner, intermediate and advanced skaters from the club, the show will highlight genres and styles of dance that were popular through the ages. The choreography in this year’s show will be by club coaches Christine, Erika and Canadian sweetheart and Olympic silver medalist Elizabeth Manley.

The afternoon will be hosted by Master of Ceremonies, John Eaton, a local radio host for more than 30 years.

This family-friendly event will bring varied performances, music, dancing and lots of attitude to the ice for an exciting show. Bring your friends to enjoy the more than 70-year-old Collingwood skating carnival tradition and decades of dancing on ice.

Join us at the Eddie Bush Memorial Arena in Collingwood and enjoy the show!
