Local Natick Youth Skates in 100th Anniversary Ice Show starring U.S. Olympic Champion Evan Lysacek
Rebecca (“Becca”) Jacobs, a high honors seventh grade student at the Kennedy Middle School, was recently a part of the Ice Chips 2012 100 Years of Excellence, a skating show celebrating the dream and accomplishments of the past, present, and future of figure skating. Becca also recently competed at the Intermediate level at the 2012 U.S. Junior National Championships in Lansing, MI where she finished 5th overall. She is the 2012 New England Regional Intermediate Champion and the 2011 New England Regional Juvenile Bronze Medalist.
Becca had a featured step-out solo in this year’s 100th Anniversary Production which celebrated the legacy of the world-renowned figure skating venue, The Skating Club of Boston. Through an innovative, entertaining, and visually illuminating production and a dramatic display of colors, lights, and dazzling skating performances, Becca and her other cast members took the audience on a fascinating journey through some of the most memorable highlights of the past century.
The Ice Chips show starred 2010 Olympic Champion Eric Lysacek and Mirai Nagasu, 2010 Olympian and 3-time U.S. Ladies Medalist as well as top skaters from the Boston area. Ice Chips is The Skating Club of Boston’s annual skating festival and the longest-running amateur ice show in the world. It has brought Boston audiences some of the biggest names in figure skating from around the world, while introducing them to current and future champions. The 2012 production of Ice Chips benefitted the Division of Sports Medicine at Children’s Hospital and the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts.
