Minneapolis Ice Dance Weekend

July 22 - 24, 2022

Eden Prairie Community Center, Eden Prairie, MN


Join us for a weekend of ice dancing, socializing and fun!


Skating is the primary focus of the weekend, with nine hours of ice time.  Along with Preliminary through Gold dances and social dances (such as the Riverside Rhumba and Golden Skaters' Waltz), there will be fun mixers to keep everyone moving.  A catered meal and socializing will follow Friday night's session.  Lunch will be provided at the rink on Saturday.  On Sunday there will be light breakfast snacks and lunch at the rink.  Snack tables are available throughout the weekend.


The Saturday ice dance clinic will be taught by local coach Laurie Benson, on a mid-level topic.


On Saturday evening join us at a nearby skater's house and backyard for dinner and socializing.  Carpools can be arranged.



Important note:  All skaters and their guests must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  It is recommended that everyone take a COVID test (either a PCR or rapid antigen) for COVID within three days before attending Ice Dance Weekend.  Please do not attend if your test is positive.

CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY NOTICE:  Please refrain from wearing perfume or cologne, as these don’t help you skate better and can distract your partner.  They also cause serious health problems for some of your fellow skaters.  Thank you.



Food donations from local skaters:


Due to Eden Prairie Community Center rules, homemade food donations are not allowed at the rink.  Happily, we can accept food donations for the Saturday evening party!  All food and beverage donations would be greatly appreciated.


If local skaters wish to bring donations of baked goodies, salads, other side dishes or beverages for the Saturday evening party, please describe your food item to Connie at cfukuda@comcast.net.
