Doncaster residents have been lacing up their skates and heading onto the ice at the Doncaster Dome, inspired by this year’s Dancing on Ice contestants.
The centre’s split level ice rink - the only one in the UK – has welcomed new visitors of all ages and abilities who are wanting to dance like their favourite stars.
The Ice Caps, home to interconnecting ramps which join two ice pads together, provide plenty of room for practicing sequences, spins, and jumps.
Jon Whiteley, deputy chief executive at Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust who manage Doncaster Dome, said: “The show has been a real hit with people across Doncaster and we have seen plenty of budding skaters getting on the ice and giving it a go.
“It’s great fun and great exercise too. Let’s hope Doncaster could one day be home to one of the future professional Dancing on Ice skaters!”.
Sessions start from 10am during the school holidays and normally run weekdays from 2pm and every weekend from 10am with hot and cold drinks and snacks available at the café. Those skating with little ones will have plenty of support from the army of snowmen and penguins to help them stand up and get around the iceNews Archive
