It is that time of year again—Dance-Pairs Chicago competition is taking over the Fox Valley Ice Arena! Every August we welcome hundreds of ice skaters, their families, coaches and fans into our arena for their annual competition. Join us as we trade our weekend hockey sticks and pucks for ballroom music and beautiful dance
From August 10-12 skaters from all over the country will fill our arena and compete at the Novice, Junior or Senior levels of Ice dancing.
We are pleased to announce that FVIA has eight solo ice dancers and five pairs of ice dancers competing this weekend!

For those that do not know, ice dancing is a form of ice skating which takes much of its components from ballroom dancing. The music must adhere to a specific dance style and skaters must dance to the beat of the music instead of the rhythm, as is common in other skating.
Admission to the competition is free on Friday and $5 on Saturday and Sunday.

If you are looking for a relaxing way to spend the weekend, come out and support out skaters!!
