What is Theatre On Ice?

Theatre on Ice (TOI) is a form of competitive figure skating that is popular
in Europe, where it is known as Ballet on Ice. It combines the grace of
figure skating with the excitement of theater and dance. Teams consist of
between eight and 30 skaters. Solo skating is discouraged, but is
permitted in limited amounts if it enhances the overall telling of the
program's story. The programs are judged by regular U.S. Figure Skating
judges and are evaluated on technical merit and presentation with
emphasis on originality, costuming, artistry and musicality.

Skaters receive the following benefits:

More competitions when performing in competitions and shows
A chance to develop the dramatic side of their skating
A chance to be part of a team while continuing to use their technical skills
A chance to travel both locally and internationally
A chance to make new friends both in and out of the club
A chance to relax while performing and competing for competitive skaters
