Meet the Winners at 2016 ProSkaters Open Live at Sun Valley

A record number of skaters participated in ProSkaters' Open Live at Sun Valley held on Sunday, July 24, 2016.  A combination of competition and theatrics, several hundred fans of show skating enjoyed watching skaters from around the country perform in front of a panel of casting directors, choreographers, and former show skaters.  Patterned after the "Dancing with the Stars" judging format, skaters were evaluated by both the professional panel and a panel of members of the public. 

Taking first place was Joyce Chan, a Sun Valley favorite who's moving and very personal performance brought many to the verge of tears.  In a tie for second were Anna Cobb from Grand Blanc, Michigan and Marco Berg from Sausalito, California.  Third place went to a duet of Anna Cobb and Garrett Kling, who hails from Watertown, Minnesota.

The professional skater's panel of judges also gave three special awards:

Most Inventive Concept - Christiana Dudik, from Park City, Utah

Best Costume - Reny Doyle, from Park City, Utah

Star of the Future - Chelsea Ridley, from Niles Illinois

Fans and skaters also witnessed the induction of three outstanding contributors to the world of show skating into ProSkaters' newly created Hall of Fame for three individuals who contributed greatly to the world of show skating and Proskaters.  They included:

Richard Dwyer - "Mr. Debonaire" and the holder of the Guinness World Record for appearing in the most professional ice shows.

Scott Williams - a fabulous skater known for his amazing barrell rolls, among other show tricks. He was a co-founder and first president of ProSkaters

Janet Wright - a visionary who was a co-founder and first executive director of ProSkaters, and a show skater as well.
