NEW YORK (PIX11)– The Winter Olympics may be coming to an end, but who needs to wait another four years to watch some incredible ice skaters.

This week Mr. G hits the ice to learn about Ice Theatre of New York, the first not-for-profit ice dance company in the country.

The group is comprised of former national, world and Olympic skaters.

These skaters are now professional and want to deepen their performance skills and explore their creativity.

Ice Theatre of New York is the resident ice dance company at Chelsea Piers’ Sky Rink.

They also perform at Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center and other rinks across the city.

Not only are these skaters learning from each other, they are teaching the next generation of skaters and giving back to the community.

For 19 years, Ice Theatre of New York has held performances for public school children in Harlem at Riverbank State Park. Following the performances is a free skating clinic for the children.

They also offer an apprentice program among other community outreach programs.

You can catch these incredible skaters at Rockefeller Center as part of their City Skate Series.

Their next performance is February 26th at 1 pm.
