“We’ve got 119 skaters that take part in the show and that’s just from the club, skating is absolutely booming here at the moment. We had more than 1,000 audience members in, so there was a lot of interest.

“People like coming along to the skate show, it’s something a bit different and there isn’t really anything like it around here unless you go to something like Disney on Ice.”

Those who attended not only got to enjoy a spectacular show, but were also offered the chance to try skating themselves and meet the cast.

Kayleigh added:  “There were a lot of audience members who felt inspired and took to the ice after our shows. I just want to say a big thank-you to all our parent helpers and all the mums and dads who helped us in the lead-up to the show. My coaching team have also been incredible, I couldn’t have a better group of coaches to help me out.”
