Show Details:

Additional Show Costs
Costumes –
a $25 costume deposit will be included at the time of registration. As a general rule of thumb, costumes range from $30-$75+ per number and will be decided by the Show Committee. The total cost for costumes will be paid upon delivery of the costumes. Once costumes are ordered, they are not returnable or refundable.


Each family is required to purchase a minimum of 6 tickets at $8 a piece. The price of the tickets will be included in the cost at the time of registration. Tickets can be resold to friends and family. Each registered skater will receive one VIP ticket. The VIP ticket allows admittance into both performances.
•    Additional discounted tickets are available for $8 each and can be purchased until one week prior to the show. Tickets cost $8 for adults and school-age children 5 and older. 
•    Senior citizens (60 and over) and students (with ID) will be $5 at the door

•    Registration fees & costume deposit are non-refundable.  

Each family is asked to contact local businesses for sponsorship ads that will be included in the Spring Show program. Sponsorship packets will be handed out at a later time.  In lieu of contacting local businesses, a skater may choose to make a $50 personal donation to the show.  
•    Sponsorship Bonus – As an incentive to get additional business sponsorships, skaters will receive a costume credit equal to 10% of the amount collected from additional sponsorships, in excess of the $50 requirement.

Practice Schedule
Practices for group numbers will begin the first week of April 2019. Each group number will practice a minimum of three (3) 30-minute sessions. Practice times will be determined based on the number of participates in the number along with the complexity of choreography.  Most group practices will begin at 5:30 pm or later during the weekdays and after Club Ice on Saturdays. The week of the Spring Show will require skaters to attend a show run through on both Wednesday and Thursday. The Friday of Show Week will be an official Dress Rehearsal where skaters will be required to be in full costumes. An official schedule will be provided to all skaters that sign up.

ALL REHEARSALS ARE MANDATORY! If you miss one rehearsal for a number and wish to remain in that number, you must contact the coach of the number AND one of the show chairs prior to the rehearsal to notify them of your absence, and you must arrange and pay for a private lesson with the coach to learn the missed material. If you miss more than one rehearsal for any number you may be unable to participate in that number, and you are still responsible for the costume cost.

Costume Measurements
On February 9th we will be having a mandatory Spring Show Meeting to review the details of the show numbers. During this time we will also need to get costume measurements for your skater. Please be sure to attend this meeting. The meeting time will be announced over the next few weeks but will likely take place after the LTS session on Saturday morning.

Volunteer Information
The Ames Figure Skating Club relies on the service of volunteers for all of our club events including the Spring Ice Show.  Because of that, we ask that one family member volunteer for a show committee to assist with the actual production of the show. The following committees are part of our show production:  Props, Cast Party, Sewing/Alterations, Sponsors, Flower Sales, Ticket Sales, Publicity, Dressing Rooms, Set-up, Tear-down, Practice Ice Monitor and/or Check-in.
