Skating Fridays

Tonya and Nancy [Video]

This week was our rink’s annual holiday show. I have never been able to participate because I have always been out of town.  I’ve been with my husband for 15 years, and this is the first year we have not traveled for the holidays.

Since we were home this year, I finally got to participate in the holiday show. My friend K and I resurrected our old Tonya and Nancy routine and made some tweaks to it. This is only the second time we’ve skated this program, and it was such a fun and hilarious program to perform.

Several audience members, skating parents and coaches came up to us afterwards to tell us how much they enjoyed our program. I wasn’t a bit nervous and really tried to ham it up in the spotlight. I’ll let you judge how we did.

You’ll see that the theme for the evening is “The Olympics.” In addition to the two of us, other skaters portrayed other Olympians such as Ashley Wagner, Jason Brown, Dorothy Hamill and Johnny Weir. There was also a spoof of the two main characters from the movie, Blades of Glory. All in all, it was a fun show, and I’m glad I was able to be part of the action this year.
