Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

YOUNG skaters got a taste of com­pet­i­tive ac­tion and put on an im­pres­sive show.

A team of ten from Mac­cles­field Artis­tic Roller Skat­ing Club took part in the Bolton Fes­ti­val of Ex­hi­bi­tion Skat­ing along­side hun­dreds of other hope­fuls.

The team in­cluded Thomas Harper, Ma­bel Pad­kin, Deb­o­rah Side­bot­tom, Flavie Gor­do­bil, Emma White, El­itsa Ivanova-Archer, Lau­ren Harper, Rhea Archer, Ruby Quinn and Efa Bridge.

They com­peted against skaters from clubs cov­er­ing an area from Stafford­shire to Durham in the two-day fes­ti­val at Smthills School.

Among the events the young­sters took on were solo dance (waltz and tango), free dance, set se­quence and duo freestyle.

Caro­line Harper, from the club, said: “Con­sid­er­ing this was their first ex­pe­ri­ence of a big, re­gional event, all of our skaters per­formed bril­liantly and some were awarded medals and tro­phies.

“All of the skaters worked ex­tremely hard to pre­pare for the fes­ti­val de­spite be­ing the small­est club there. We had a great team spirit through­out the week­end.” Mac­cles­field Artis­tic Roller Skat­ing Club
