ST. PAUL, Minn. — The artistry, romance and athleticism of skaters dancing on ice has always been a magnetic beam, mesmerizing those who watch into an awe-inspired trance.
The 2015 Stars on Ice “Dancing for Joy” Tour will celebrate our love of dancing on ice with many of the top medalists of the past two Winter Olympic games. The dancing is so good that this year’s tour cast features a champion, runner-up and semi-finalist from the hit TV show “Dancing with the Stars.” At the center of this celebration of dancing on ice will be 2014 Olympic Ice Dance Gold Medalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White. They captured the hearts of fans across the globe with near perfect performances in Sochi last February. Now, they will headline the Emmy Award-winning production when it arrives in Saint Paul on Sunday, March 22 for a 4 p.m. performance at Xcel Energy Center.
This year’s tour will feature two of the most dominant competitors of the past decade in men’s figure skating, as well as one of the greatest ladies figure skaters ever. 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek will return to Stars on Ice for the first time since 2011, while three-time World Champion and 2014 Olympic Silver MedalistPatrick Chan will make his debut on the U.S. Stars on Ice tour. The 2015 Stars on Ice “Dancing for Joy” Tour is also proud to welcome back two-time Olympic Pairs Gold Medalist Ekaterina Gordeeva.
In keeping with the Tour’s theme of “Dancing for Joy,” America’s two greatest Ice Dance teams, 2014 Olympic Gold Medalists Davis & White and 2006 Olympic Silver Medalists Tanith Belbin & Ben Agosto, will rekindle the passion and pageantry viewers experienced during their Olympic performances.
