This group of talented choreographers have all matriculated through Audrey Weisiger’s “Young Artists Showcase”—an online figure skating choreography competition, now in its 4th year. This concert will feature YAS champions and finalists presenting solos, duets, and ensemble numbers of their work. This is an exciting opportunity to see the future of figure skating as many of these choreographers are already working on the National and International stage.
