Figure skaters getting ready for holiday show in Luzerne County


JENKINS TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – Ice skating is an Olympic favorite and a great way to get some exercise during the long winter months. The skaters at Blue Ridge Figure Skating Club have been working hard to get ready for their holiday show.

“It takes a lot of practices to get some things, like some things come easy, some things are tough. Spins come really easy to me and I like practicing spins a lot,” Jenna Valjunas said.

Coach Carmina Monaco has been skating for more than half a century. She loves watching her students learn.

“I get to watch the children grow and develop and maybe give them something special that they take through life with them,” Monaco said.

The holiday show is Sunday, December 23 at 2:00pm at Revolution Ice Center. It is free for all.
