Jordan Moeller "will return to host his eighth annual fundraiser for Children’s Oncology Services, Inc. In its first seven years 'One Skate at a Time' has raised more than $70,000": https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/daily-southtown/news/ct-sta-community-news-st-0419-story.htmlIce Theater of NY is having a benefit show on Thursday, May 2 at 7 pm at Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers, with Misha Ge as their guest skater.
The email I got says that they will be presenting Gracie Gold with their Will Sears Award ("given to a skater who demonstrates exceptional daring and persistence in pursuit of her passion") but it doesn't sound like Gracie will actually be performing.

Jordan Moeller raised over $5000 at his 8th Annual "One Skate at a Time" show this past Saturday in Crestwood, IL - here's a group photo and message shared by him: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxK1j2Blbh-/... choreographed by Deneane Richburg, a skating and dance choreographer and founder of Brownbody, a company that combines modern dance, theater, social justice practice and skating.
“This piece is about presence and the idea of what that means. What does it mean to be in a space, to self-affirm, to get externally affirmed on multiple levels—physically, emotionally and spiritually? For a lot of African-Americans, we have not had that,” said Richburg, who worked with James for about a week and a half on the program. He learned the choreography in about two days, and they spent the rest of the time focused on the intent of the piece.
On Ice Perspectives' Jordan Cowan will be filming on ice here this weekend:Scheduled to perform with Moeller are Courtney Hicks, Jimmy Ma and the 2019 U.S. Junior Pairs bronze medalists Isabelle Martins/Ryan Bedard.

Claire has cross-posted her Alex Johnson interview link in her "A Divine Sport" blog thread and the U.S. Men's thread here: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/threads/u-s-men-2018-19-season-cont-news-updates.104980/page-18#post-5585781So last weekend I went to Ice Crystals, the annual show of the Colonial Figure Skating Club here in Massachusetts. As noted above in this thread, Alex Johnson was the guest star. Alex was amazing as usual & performed a new exhibition number in the show. Here is my article about the show (it contains a fancam vid of Alex's new EX): https://adivinesport.com/2019/05/12/ice-crystals-2019/#more-4960
P.S. I'll also be posting an interview with Alex tomorrow.
These look like the costumes for the Knierims' new "American Woman" exhibition (amusing clip): https://www.instagram.com/p/BxkXei5HCmZ/@aftershocks asked about the Cleveland Skating Club's show this past weekend - see post #38 above for a couple of tidbits gleaned from Instagram/IG stories. I also glimpsed a snippet of "American Woman" that seemed to be the Knierims' new exhibition program.

Aw man, I've got plans that night! But if they're going to keep bringing in top skaters, I'll make sure to keep an eye out for future shows!For those in the DC/Northern Virginia area, there's a new arena opening in Leesburg, VA, the Ion International Training Center. https://www.ionitc.com

Glad you enjoyed the show, Heather! Thanks for sharing your impressions and photos: http://figureskatersonline.com/news/2019/06/24/review-2019-skate-it-forward-benefit-show-highly-entertaining/I did end up going to the Skate It Forward show in Columbus, OH yesterday but I'm on vacation now (I left this morning) so I don't have much time to talk about it here (it was really fun). I did write up my show review for FSO though so that should be posted sometime this week. I thought the show was very well done and I enjoyed all of the headliners' programs.
