‘Beauty and the Beast’ fills A. G. Ross Arena with Disney magic


ELK POINT - The beautiful music of Disney’s unforgettable ‘Beauty and the Beast’ filled A. G. Ross Arena on Saturday afternoon, as Brian Poitras narrated the classic tale and skaters ranging from tiny tots to teens played their parts in the story.

Solo and group skates by Junior Star Skaters Hailey Danyluk, Emily Hammond, Liliane Ouellet, Kennady Pierce, Bella Pinette, Montana Sharkey and Scarlett Sharkey were interspersed by numbers by beginners dressed as a pack of tiny wolves, skaters who had been turned into plates and cutlery by a spell and a speedy swirl of Canskaters as the tale continued.

Two outstanding performances by Skate Canada’s Got Talent 2023 winner Chris Hammer of Edmonton and Beaumont Skating Club member Natalia Custodo, who recently won the Stollery Superstar Award as the top fundraiser for kids with cancer, wowed the huge crowd with their impressive moves developed over the past six months of skating together.

The afternoon, which also included a huge array of draw items donated by local businesses and individuals, wrapped up with the presentation of roses to coaches Dennell Anderson and Candice Braun and their program assistants as another great year of skating came to an exciting conclusion.
