Local Skaters to Perform Alongside Olympians in Stars on Ice Tour

Come support 30 local skaters this weekend alongside the Olympic cast of Stars on Ice! This Sunday’s show at the Xcel center will be the first to feature a new partnership between U.S. Figure Skating and Stars On Ice to include local skaters in an opening number. Skaters from 11 clubs in MN and WI will perform at the beginning of the second act. We are thrilled at the chance to have local skaters from so many clubs come together for this professional project to promote local figure skating and skate with the stars. This program is under the direction of U.S. Figure Skating, with the local coaching and coordinating team of Carey Tinkelenberg, Peter Biver, and Amanda Truax.

Congrats to Kelly Gulbrandson, First NSS Skater to Pass a Gold U.S. Figure Skating Test!

Earlier this week, staff member Kelly Gulbrandson became NSS’s first skater to pass a Gold U.S. Figure Skating test. Kelly tested her Adult Gold Moves in the Field Test, the highest test of its kind attainable in the U.S. Figure Skating structure. A panel of judges evaluated her patterns for qualities such as power, extension, and edge quality, and she received passing scores from all three judges. Kelly trains year-round at the St. Paul Figure Skating Club with NSS director and coach Carey Tinkelenberg.
