    Young Artists Showcase helps aspiring choreographers; "Quest for Creativity" videos

    Article: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    Audrey Weisiger talks about her brainchild, Young Artists Showcase (YAS):
    "The goal is to develop the choreographers' craft, so that when a show director says, 'I want a group number with chairs, and I want it by Thursday,' these kids can deliver."

    On Project Runway, the payoff for winning designers is showing their collections at New York Fashion Week. Some all-star "YAS'ers" had their big moment last week, when Ice Theatre of New York's 2013 City Skate Concert Series showed works from eight young choreographers, ranging in age from 9 to 30.
    ...
    "The ultimate goal is to mentor young choreographers outside of the realm of elite skating, because elite skating is getting narrower and narrower," Weisiger said. "The international judging system has a lot of limits and a lot of requirements.
    The Ice Theater of New York's Facebook page has photos of this event held on Wednesday, March 27 at NYC's Rockefeller Center rink - here's one set:

    IN has video up from the March 27th show at the Rockefeller Center rink: http://web.icenetwork.com/media/play...2010.swf&_mp=1

    It's great to see Eliot Halverson back and performing on the ice to choreographer Mark Hanretty's "An Englishman in New York" (around the 25-minute mark).

    Note that, due to technical difficulties, there's no audio except for when the recorded music is played for each of the skating performances.
