“Since its inception in 1984, Ice Theatre has been dedicated to the development and advancement of figure skating as a performing art. Through community outreach, it enables New York City public school children to get out on the ice and is widely recognized for the “New Works and Young Artists Series,” its innovative educational program that uses skating as an effective and empowering motivator and teaching tool.”

“Ensemble groups like Ms. North’s Ice Theater may be the best hope for the future simply because they recall what skating has the potential to be: dancing on air.”

"We were delighted to work with you and your crew on our event at Rockefeller Center. The ice show you put together for our clients was well thought out and beautifully executed, and our clients truly enjoyed watching your talented performers. Thanks for indulging our clients by having two of your skaters flank our VIPs while they delivered their speeches in sub-zero temperatures. The teachers who assisted our guests during the skating party afterwards were extremely helpful and certainly built on the festive nature of the event. I must say that your entire staff is accommodating and professional and a joy to work with.
