One lucky amateur Sheffield skater will win the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to appear in the Fit to Dance pre-show on Friday November 17. The Fit to Dance pre-show invites the audience to join Nick and Judy from Zootropolis in a fun, energetic dance routine before the show starts.

To launch the competition, three workshops, hosted by Disney On Ice skaters at IceSheffield, took place where amateur skaters of different abilities showed off their skating skills to enter the competition. They even got a sneak peek of some of the moves from Disney On Ice presents Passport to Adventure.

The competition opens to all skaters today on the IceSheffield website https://siv.org.uk/forms/disney-on-ice-competition,inviting amateur skaters to upload a video of themselves in action until September 18. Once all entries are received, Disney On Ice and IceSheffield will select the winner based on who captures the fun, sparkle and magic of Disney On Ice the most.
