WICHITA, Kan. — The Wichita Figure Skating Club, in conjunction with Visit Wichita will host the 2020 National Theatre on Ice competition, June 24-27, 2020 at the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita.

“Skaters and their families were so impressed by our facilities when we hosted the sectional championships in Wichita last year,” shares Executive Director of Sports, Brian Hargrove. “We are thrilled to host Theatre on Ice in Wichita as well. We will not only be able to showcase our hospitality once again but those in Wichita can benefit from seeing the competition live which is so unique to the Midwest.”
Theatre on Ice (TOI) is a form of competitive figure skating that combines figure skating elements with theatre and dance. Teams consist of between eight and 24 skaters. The programs are judged by U.S. Figure Skating judges and are evaluated on technical merit and presentation. Judging also includes an emphasis on originality, costumes, artistry and music.
