I haven't seen an official announcement, but I emailed Tricia Laroche of the US Athletic Foundation to inquire about their benefit show this year, and she said An Evening On Ice will be July 21 at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, CA.

I'm assuming that Kitchener Waterloo will have Moore-Towers/Moscovitch, Bobak/Beharry, Orr/Furiano, Rau/Simpson and probably Mulder/Lioudvinevitch, dancers.

Stratford would have Bell/Sylvester novice pair who just went to Jr worlds

Brant says something about Orr/Furiano

Guelph is going to have Bobak/Beharry

Preston is also the same day as the Kitchener show, don't know if Bobak/Beharry will skate there also as it was his club for years

Bobak/Beharry will be skating in all four shows. They are not appearing in Preston. The Preston show is the same weekend as KW. Info can be found here: http://www.prestonfsc.com/Newsite/Ice%20Show/ice%20show.html

Not sure about Bell/Sylvester in Stratford. Orr/Furiano will not be in Brantford but will be in KW along with all the other teams noted as well as Steele/Schultz who also made the national team this year. It will be the last performance for Lioudvinevitch/Mulder as she has decided to concentrate full time on university next year.

‏@EmilySamuelson just tweeted:


Be sure to come by the Ann Arbor Ice Cube to see Melody On Ice:
The Wizard of Oz ice show tomorrow and Saturday. Todd & I will be skating


I found this kink:

Melody on Ice 2012

Show Title: The Wizard of Oz on Ice
Show Dates: Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24, 2012
Show Times: Friday 7:00pm / Saturday 2:00 and 7:00pm

I noticed "Director: Eliot Halverson"
Is this that Eliot who won the junior title at the US Nationals in 2007,
or is it just coincidentally the same name?

Yes, it should be the same Halverson. Thanks, YukiNieve!

2 more shows:

Thanks, Sylvia!

I really liked him when I saw him compete around 2006-2009,
and have been wondering what he is up to lately,
after hearing that he had to battle medical issues.

I am glad to know that he will play such an important role in the show!

This doesn't help anyone wanting to go see the skaters perform, but today at the Chatham Figure Skating Club carnival, Moore-Towers/Moscovitch skated :)

The skaters didn't know they were coming so it was a good surprise, even for us adult skaters!
