This year, Kate choreographed for two teams competing in Indiana for the U.S. Figure Skating Theatre on Ice (TOI) Nationals. The Colonial Figure Skating Club’s team, “Broadway Blades,” entered the Intermediate division and North Shore Skating Club’s team, “Crystal Blades,” competed in the Open Division. Both teams performed their Choreographic Exercise (CE) and Free Skate programs.
Kate’s choreography was seen in Crystal Blades’ free skate, which used protective raincoats as a metaphor for exploring friendship and community, and their CE, which was set to the popular new film La La Land. She also choreographed Broadway Blades’ CE, looking at how technology and “screentime” in our society give rise to fantasy. Watch the Broadway Blades 2017 CE on YouTube:
Kate was so proud of both teams’ beautiful performances and hard work all season!
