The final Midcoast Recreation Center Skating School show of the season had a distinct Disney vibe as newer and accomplished, younger and older ice performers took spectators through "Decades of Wonder."

The spring ice shows, "Decades of Wonder," on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, March 30-31 at MRC, featured Disney favorites through the years, said Kitrina Patterson, MRC skating director.

Skaters from the Learn to Skate program, featured figure skating soloists and groups performed to music from Disney that inspired them to love skating on ice, Patterson said.

The shows had many soloists, including a handful taking the ice for the first time as solo performances.

Skaters demonstrated plenty of beauty, grace, artistic vision and incredible athleticism.

Patterson asked for the public to bring friends and family to support a local non-profit that provides not only an excellent program to the community, but also scholarships, and financial aid to its participants.

Spectators also were asked to bring new stuffed animals to throw on the ice after skaters' performances. Those animals went to Rosie's Hugs, which began two years ago as a way to bring comfort to scared and sick children at local emergency rooms. This organization collects new or 'like-new' stuffed animals that are then handed out to young patients in local hospitals.

The soloists for the weekend's two shows were Elizabeth Aley, Sophie Baker, Kira Bennett, Claudia Fox, Hannah Graves, Taylor Hodgdon, Lillian Nelson, Sadie Olmsted, Claire Wyman and Emie Wood.

Lexi Tinch, a senior at Camden Hills Regional High School, also was recognized, but could not participate in her final shows. She is a member of the National Honor Society and played field hockey four years. She has skated since age 5 and was part of nearly 30 skating shows. She will study biology in college.
