Wings (StarSkate)

The stars came out to dazzle spectators at the two performances (1:00 and 5:00 p.m.) of the Port Stanley Skating Club's Let the Stars Shine, the club's 41st annual carnival on Saturday, April 12, 2014.

Fast paced as the show moved from number to number, the Wings number was a thoroughly enchanting group performance from some of the club's younger members.

Soloist Coleen Black, who has been figure skating for six years and is coached by Kim McCaw and Trudy Malloy, glided effortless across the ice, moving with smooth confidence through her spins and jumps. She is currently working on her Junior Silver Dances and double jumps, and also skates with the Port Stanley Waves Pre-Novice Synchronized Skating Team. She is in Grade 7 at St. Anne;s Catholic School in St. Thomas.

15 year old Erin Freeman, a Grade 9 student at Arthur Voden Secondary School in St. Thomas, gave a solo interpretive performance to a currently popular song. She has skated synchro for seven years and is working on her Gold Skills and Senior Silver Dances. Always a crowd pleaser, the Waves Beginner 1 Synchro Team picked up the pace following Erin's solo performance.

As Mariah McCaw warmed up on the ice while the announcer introduced her, it was readily apparent her impressive list of accomplishments was well earned. At 16 years old she made PSSC history this season by achieving Triple Golds (Dance, Skills and Freeskate). She currently skates Novice Women's at the Sectional Level. Mariah placed 3rd in the long program and 4th in the short program at the Dennis Silverthorne Competition. A Grade 10 student at Parkside Collegiate Institute in St Thomas, she is enrolled in the London Competitive Skating School.

And this was only the first half of the program! The Waves Pre-Novice Synchro Team closed out the first half of the show and the Waves Elementary 2 Synchro Team fired up the ice as they opened the second half of the program. Soloists in the second half included Mikayla Timmermans, Paige Chupka and Lindsey Shivers.

Paige has returned to home ice from the London Competitive Skating School with a renewed focus on testing her skills and dance. She is looking forward to competing at the StarSkate level.

Mikayla Timmermans is a 15 year old Grade 10 student at SDCI in Strathroy. She has achieved her Gold Level in both skills and dance and has been skating synchro for 10 years.

11 year old Lindsey Shivers is a Grade 6 student at Southwold Public School and skates with the Port Stanley Waves Elementary Synchro Team. Senior skaters from the PSSC wound up the show with a peppy, inspiring number set to Moves Like Jagger. Mick Jagger can only wish he could move like those girls!
