ROCKPORT – Ice Dance International (IDI), New England’s premier ice dancing performing arts company, launches its tour this fall. The live show at Midcoast Recreation Center, 535 West St., takes place Sunday, Sept. 25, at 3 p.m. Tickets for the show are $25 for adults and $15 for 10 years old and younger.

IDI’s new show, entitled “Grace: The Power of Dance on Ice,” features 10 world-class figure skaters including Grand Prix Final and two-time United States Champion Alissa Czisny and US Open Champions Kseniya Ponomaryova and Collin Brubaker.

The tour runs from Sept. 17 through Oct. 9 at a variety of venues in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts. These are the first ticketed performances since the pandemic began. IDI Founder and Artistic Director Douglas Webster said, “We have created a new repertoire with an incredibly talented group of skaters. ‘Grace’ is a theatrical journey on ice with dynamic, athletic movement that showcases beautiful artistic ensemble skating. The choreography and music, combined with the ability of our powerful skaters, promises to transport the audience.”

“Grace” celebrates the art of dance on ice and features works by choreographers from the 2022 Olympic games, including Benoit Richaud, Rohene Ward and Cindy Stuart, who is also the leading choreographer for Disney on Ice. Webster created “Grace” with the support of Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe, Vt.; the New England Foundation for the Arts; and Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth, N.H.

This is Ice Dance International’s eighth season and second visit to the area this year. Last February, the company provided a free performance and a skating skills class to the Midcoast community as one of L.L.Bean’s “Winter Across Maine” partners. IDI plans to return and offer more free programming in the winter of 2023.

“Grace” is 90 minutes including one intermission. For tour information and tickets, visit the IDI website’s upcoming events page at It is recommended to bring warm clothes and a seat cushion to the show.
