100th Anniversary Opening Ceremonies
Highlight ProductionsU.S. Figure Skating
2014 PRUDENTIAL U.S. FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS - The Skating Club of Boston will light up the ice and celebrate 100 years of the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and America’s greatest skaters with an opening ceremony paying tribute to The Hero’s Journey.
Featuring breathtaking performances by over 85 performers, including world-class acrobats, dancers and skaters, The Hero’s Journey will honor the challenges and triumphs the everyday individual of mythology encountered in becoming a hero, much like that of today’s athlete, who experiences much the same journey in becoming a champion. The Hero’s Journey will feature a dramatic and illuminating display of color, costumes and performance celebrating the stories and victories of athletes and their transformative journeys.
Hosted by special guest Nancy Chen of WHDH Channel 7, this very special event will be followed immediately by one of the highlight events of the U.S. Championships, the Championship Ladies Short Program. America’s top women figure skaters take to the ice to begin their quest for a spot on Team USA.
