Show Day Details

Show skaters arrive Show day @ 5pm

Arrive with hair & make-up ready. Put your costume on at home. Don't forget to put your over-the-boot tights on before you put your costume on.

Skaters will watch the show together near the locker rooms. Costumes must be covered with a robe. Skaters must be lined up in the hallway 3 routines before their group routine or solo.

If your skater has multiple changes/quick changes, parents will need to come down during the show & assist their skater in the dressing room for the quick change.  You may pre-set your quick change costume in the locker room closest to the ice.  

Please be aware of others changing in the locker room-no cell phone use.   

We realize it can be stressful having quick changes. Please keep in mind we want to keep the dressing rooms a positive atmosphere for everyone.  If your skater and parent are having a "moment of stress" please take a moment to breathe & know it will all be okay. Please advise your child ahead of time that if they do have a quick-change to breathe, stay calm, and positive.  

Be sure to check for your dressing room assignments upon arrival. A list will be available on the front table. 

All dressing rooms will list group names. Please be dressed, hair and make-up ready upon arrival. No males in the locker rooms.

Absolutely NO cell phones in the locker rooms.

If a skater is using a cell phone in the locker room their cell phone will be given to the locker room mom who will hold it until the end of the show.

All locker rooms must be free of trash & no items may be left in the dressing rooms. If you leave an item there is a lost and found in the lobby.  

Skaters will sit in the designated skater seating area near the skater ice entrance for the show. We will have designated parents to chaperone the skater seating area-skaters are not able to sit with their parents during the show unless your skater is age 4/5 years old. Skaters will sit with the group they perform with.

There are rentals immediately following our dress rehearsal & show. Please exit the dressing rooms when you are changed.  If your items are not removed immediately following the show, you will have to wait until the hockey players are out of the locker room to re-enter.   

Please pick up your skaters swag bag gift & skater “ Travel Advenure wishes” from the lobby upon your departure. Swag bag compliments of Riedell Skates & Strauss Skate Shop.

Skater “Travel Adventure” skaters wish wall

Each skater will have a special “Travels Adventure” skater passport with their name on it at the show. We encourage friends & family members in attendance to write a "skater wish" on the postcards available for purchase $1 and tape it near their favorite skater’s Travels Adventure skater passport. Skater wishes will be for sale on Saturday 2/16 at Skate school & the evening of the show (we will not be selling flowers the night of the show.)
