In 1975, after the construction of the Lincoln Park Community Center, 4 families got together and decided to start a Learn to Skate program at the facility and Skate Company Skating Club was formed. This included an annual ice show. Mrs. Victoria Michaels was the first Skating Director, having led the program for over 20 years. Our program has produced solo competitors, Synchro teams (Lincolnettes and Ice Fusion) and Basic Skills Competitions. Over the years many Olympic hopefuls and medalists have been guest skaters in what has been called “The Finest Ice Show Downriver”. Skaters such as Olympian Nicole Bobek and Olympic Gold Medalist Dance Skaters Meryl Davis & Charlie White have been in our ice show. Current US Nationals and Worlds competitor Grant Hochstein has been a guest skater as well as Dan Hollander. Some former Ice Show Directors are Lisa Louden, Clair LaDue, Katherine Rzeppa, Amy Grattop, Christina Delgado, former Skate Company member Mary DePalma. Skate Company will be hosting their 41st annual Ice Show in May 2016 under the direction of a team of ladies that were once Learn to Skate and Ice Show participants when they were children!
