There is a professional ice-dancing company founded by Douglas Webster, of Kittery, who is bringing some outside fun to Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth to give us a little bit (maybe even a lot) of joy and happiness!
The performances will take place Thursday, Friday and Saturday every weekend until February 5 at Strawbery Banke Museum. More details from their website, icedanceinternational.org here:
“Local world-class Ice Dance International (IDI) will perform 3 pop-up shows at Labrie Family Skate at Puddle Dock Pond at Strawbery Banke Museum this weekend and again next weekend. IDI is currently the company in residence at the Museum. This week’s 13-minute piece, called Revival, is a story of hope and joy! Performers include 2 x United States Champion, Alissa Czisny."
Times for the performances this weekend are Thursday at 5:30 p.m., Friday at 6:45 p.m. and Saturday at 1:45 p.m. Lawn-viewing attendance is limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so if you want to see this performance live in person I'd advise getting tickets early.
You can also see the performance online in the comfort of wherever you are. Just click here for more information.
The show sounds like a lot of fun with a lot of music! Looking forward to bundling up and getting outside for some creative movement on and off the ice!
P.S. - I've lived on the Seacoast for almost 30 years and I've been to the museum in Portsmouth of which we speak countless times and just today, just now, I realized that "Strawbery" is spelled with just one 'r.' Banke has a fancy 'e' on the end, too. I love Portsmouth!
