The 100th Anniversary of the Canadian Figure Skating Championships returns to its roots January 9th to 15th, 2014 in Ottawa, site of the first official event held back in 1914.

To celebrate this rare historic milestone, Skate Canada presents a mini-ice show “CANADA SKATES! 100 YEARS OF CHAMPIONS” with daily performances Jan 10th through 12th at Ottawa City Hall’s Rink of Dreams.

Choreographed by Olympic bronze medalist, World and Canadian Champion, Jeffrey Buttle, and performed by top-level skaters primarily from the Ottawa area, the 10-minute show will guide viewers through an artistic representation of the century-long development of the sport in Canada. The show depicts how Canada’s love for skating began in the early 20th century and has progressed to the artistic and athletic modern competition.

Styles change, costumes change, the sport’s athletic direction changes and build … but what never changes is Canada’s love for skating!
