National Figure Skating Month is an event sponsored by the U.S. Figure Staking Association. The association encourages local clubs and rinks to promote and encourage figure skating in their communities.
Spirit Ice Arena invites local residents to join them for figure skating lessons. There are programs for beginners, experts, solo skaters or for those who enjoy synchronized skating. On January 25, a free skating exhibition will be held at Spirit Ice beginning at 7 p.m. The arena invites skaters of all levels and ages to come out and show off their competition or exhibition routines. It's a great opportunity for competitive figure skaters to show their routine to friends and fellow skaters.
Ferrell Mack and Kathryn Greenwade were on BVTM Friday to talk about the exhibition. Ferrell is a Rudder High School junior who loves to figure skate. In 2012, she placed second at the regional level and first and second place at a national competition in California.
