The Bremerton Figure Skating Club will be well represented at the U.S. Figure Skating National Showcase this week in Wenatchee.
Five members of BFSC will skate at the Toyota Town Center beginning Thursday. The showcase, hosted by the Wenatchee Figure Skating Club, is unlike other skating competitions in that it blends artistic creativity with the power and strength of skating for singles, duets, small ensembles and productions of up to 30 skaters.
Competing for BFSC are Ashley Christman, Savannah Morrey, Cami Christie, Chloe Peterson and Isabelle Pirak. Christman, 14 of Kingston, is skating in the Intermediate Light Entertainment category to Hoe Down/Wild Wild West. Morrey, 17, of Bremerton, is competing in the Novice Dramatic category to I Think It’s Gonna Rain Today.
Christie, 16 of Poulsbo, is skating in two categories — Preliminary Light Entertainment and Dramatic Showcase. She will skate to AABA’s Super Trouper and Never Enough, respectively.
Port Orchard’s Peterson, 11, will compete in the Preliminary Light Entertainment and skate to Cat in the Hat.
Pirak, a 16-year-old from Port Orchard, is competing in Teen Light Entertainment to the song These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ from Austin Powers.
The skaters are coached by Brenda Peterson, Shannon Shopshire and Charmaine Wagner.
BFSC skaters qualified for the showcase by finishing in the top four at any showcase, theatrical, or interpretive event at sanctioned events this season. More than 340 skaters will be competing until Aug. 4.
