Nelson Figure Skating Club presented Express to the Stars

Figure skaters wrapped up their season of training on the Express train.

The Nelsons Figure Skating Club was all aboard the Express for the Stars at the Nelson and District Community Complex arena.

Inspired by the golden age of train travel and a love of exotic destinations performances from skaters as young as five right up to senior Star Skate levels and great guest performances took spectators to far away places.

Dressed as sleeper car passengers, waitresses, commuters, and mythical creatures the stars had the help of an experienced conductor.

The musical journey included music from movies such as Madagascar and The Polar Express. The season-ending gala took the dedicated figure skaters to the end of the season on Saturday.
