The Boundless Edge Performance Group will skate Set Fire to the Ice, a trio set to Adle’s Set Fire to the Sky, skated by James Basseler, Gracie Fossett and Olivia Wogan.  Carl Carrozza will perform the Sodiers Day Dream.  Boundless Edge students will also skate in several duets and trios.

 

FROZEN FEET THEATER directed by Mike Carson and Beth Woronoff has created a new genre in ice dancing that goes beyond the current Ice Capades-Follies-Cirque-Stars on Ice format, by telling dramatic stories; the myths and legends of the worlds’ cultures. Integrating the fluid strength and agility of skater/actors and the magical realism of puppetry within a narrative structure, this offers ice dancers the opportunity to present stories reflecting who we are, were and can be. 

Their unique format has altered the approach of ice dancers, to include acting a role and has added a new dimension and way to reach an audience by combining the skaters’ unique artistry within the context of a multifaceted story such as “Viva La Vida; The Life of Frida Kahlo” or “Persephone and the Birth of Winter”. The company has received grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. 

 

Boundless Edge is a Saugerties, NY based School and Performance Group, founded in 2002.  Its’ mission is to teach, develop and establish ice skating as a performance art in the Hudson Valley and beyond. The school had a unique curriculum that encourages creativity and self expression.  The Ensemble offers these local artistic skaters a performance venue for their talents.
