The Delia Skating Club strutted their stuff to the best music of the last fifty years during the "Through The Ages" Skating Carnival on Saturday.

Treasurer Natasha Rosin explained more about the theme of the night.

"It was music over the last fifty years. We featured artist from the '80s, '90's, 2000, 2010 and some from the '70s. We had Elvis Presley, obviously the King of Rock and Roll, we had The BeeGees, Gloria Gainer, Taylor Swift and Queen.

The Delia Skating Club recently introduced Ice Dance performances to their carnival lineup. This is where the senior skaters will dance with a partner on ice with a specific set of footwork.

"They each performed a solo to music chosen by themselves. They also did an Ice Dance, which is a requirement by Skate Canada. They are tested on those every year. So they partnered with our coach Kim Larson, and demonstrated just a glimpse of what these dances look like that they have to be tested on," continued Rosin.

Senior skaters usually pass two dances each year. Each dance is ranked by Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level proceeds to be harder in difficulty.

In terms of the season as a whole, Rosin said things went very well all around.

"This will be the final year for one of our skaters. Sonya Nielsen is graduating this year and will be off to college in the fall. So this year we had a total of 41 skaters in our group, ages 3-18. The 3-year-old are always fun to watch on the ice, and we actually had quite a big new group this year. The beginning skaters, we had 11 of them in total.
