Figure Skaters and Dancers Get to Perform With the Stars:
The company's dream is to help inspire figure skaters and dancers everywhere. Through shows children are given an opportunity to perform with and learn from elite figure skaters and from Fox’s “SYTYCD” Finalists dancers.
History of the Show:
"Skate for Life" was the inspiration behind Skate Dance Dream™. Parker wanted to provide an opportunity for young figure skaters and dancers to meet famous skaters and dancers, and also perform with them in a professional show. He wished to help children's dreams come true.
Olympic Figure Skating Champion, Scott Hamilton, also influenced Pennington. Parker was invited to perform in "Hamilton and Friends." Getting a chance to perform with one of the skating greats that he had always looked up to was a dream come true for Parker. He realized he would never forget that memory. He wanted to give other young skaters that same chance. Parker Pennington decided to create a show that gave children of every background and ability the chance to perform alongside their skating and dance heroes. He wanted them to remember that experience for the rest of their lives.
