WHAT DO WE SAY? THANK YOU!! WE ARE HERE IN MUSKEGON WHERE SOMETHING SPECIAL IS TAKING PLACE. WE HAVE A PHENOMENAL SHOW THAT IS GOING TO BE TAKING PLACE APRIL 13. THE MUSKEGON LAKE SHOW BIGGEST SKATING CLUB IS PARTNERING WITH THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB AND WILL HAVE AN ALL-INCLUSIVE SHOW TO BRING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER ON THE ICE AND IN THE SAND. YOU TOOK KIDS FROM THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB THAT MAY BE HAVE NEVER SKATED, TEACH THEM, AND A PUT ON A SHOW WITH THE FIGURE SKATING CLUB AND LOOK AWESOME AND HAVE FUN? TRADITIONALLY FIGURE SKATING IS ONE OF THE MOST UNINCLUSIVE SPORTS. HAD WE MAKE IT AS INCLUSIVE AS POSSIBLE? THE ANSWER WAS LET’S GET KIDS ON THE ICE. WHAT REACTION HAVE YOU HAD FROM YOUR STUDENTS? THEY HAVE HAD A BLAST. ONE STAFF MEMBER SURPRISED US AND WAS AN INCREDIBLE FIGURE SKATER. WHEN THE KIDS SAW HER ON THE ICE AND HAD THAT RELATIONSHIP, THEY WERE INTO IT. NOW OUR KIDS ARE SAD WHEN THEY DO NOT GET ICE TIME. THE KIDS BEHIND US ARE DEFINITELY ENJOYING IT. WHAT AN AWESOME PARTNERSHIP. I THINK IT GIVES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO SEE WHAT SKATING IS AND GET THEM INTERESTED IN THE SPORT. BUT I LOVE ABOUT FIGURE SKATING IS WORKING HARD TO GET A JUMP AND THE FEELING YOU HAVE WHEN YOU FINALLY GET IT. YOU GET TO DO FUN TRICKS ON THE ICE. PEOPLE HAVE TO PAY FOR THE STUFF TO ICE SKATE AND WE DON’T BECAUSE WE ARE FROM THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB. TO HELP OUT WITH THE KIDS IS AN HONOR. THE ENERGY IS ALWAYS GREAT. SHOW US YOUR STUFF. I LIKE THE ICE SKATES. I LIKE THE ICE. I LIKE EVERYTHING ABOUT A SKATING. ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE BIG SHOW?
