Shows and Special Events
The Skating Club of Boston offers many opportunities for members to celebrate their love of skating at various shows throughout the year. Each year, Club skaters participate in the Frog Pond Skating Spectacular at the Boston Common Frog Pond. This show is a great way to welcome and celebrate the holiday season as it is held first at the Boston Common Tree Lighting Ceremony, and again at First Night Boston as the city celebrates the welcoming of a new calendar year. In addition, the longest continuously-running ice carnival in the world, Ice Chips, highlights over 200 Club members, as well as special guest star performers from around the world. Ice Chips typically is held early in the spring and the festive weekend is highlighted by three separate shows. These shows are an incredible celebration of skating and are another example of the exciting events that are planned throughout the entire Club calendar year.
Ice Chips is the Club’s annual figure skating show and the longest-running, club-produced ice show in the world. This event has showcased the world’s most outstanding figure skaters, including national, international and Olympic champions. The show encompasses a cast of over 480 skaters, including singles, pairs, ice dance, synchronized skating teams and Theatre On Ice teams. Since its inception, it has served as a showcase for the best figure skating talent in the world. Learn More
