Alpena Figure Skating Club hosting showcase Saturday

Performers try to match their choreography to weather and their song. This skater is performing to "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas.

Alpena, Mich — The Alpenas Figure Skating Club is hosting their annual showcase this weekend. They’re also the third oldest figure skating club in the country. The showcase is held at Northern Lights Arena.

For those who missed Friday’s showcase, there are two performances on Saturday at 1:00 and 7:00pm. The event allows skaters with ages ranging from preschool to high school to show the community how much they’ve learned. The high school seniors also get to perform a senior solo.

The theme of the showcase is “weather,” so the song choices and choreography try to portray the weather. The ice is also covered by fog for the start of the show.

The showcase is also a fundraiser for the program. Saturday’s 7:00pm performance will be the final performance.
