TORONTO - For Elvis Stojko, its the perfect marriage of two of his passions — the stage and the ice. Jaime Garcia Jersey .Performing is performing, Stojko said. Whatever skill it is, there is still a certain aspect of being able to connect with the live audience.The three-time world figure skating champion will team up with former ice dancer Shae-Lynn Bourne and other skating stars for Blades on Stage, a skating show with the intimacy of a stage production that opens Christmas Eve at the Princess of Wales Theatre.Stojko is no stranger to the stage. He played slick defence lawyer Billy Flynn in the hit musical Chicago earlier this year. Its neat because doing Chicago, and feeling the stage, I saw the similarities between performing on the ice and that, Stojko said. At first I felt like a fish out of water, performing without my skates and using my voice and that type of thing.Now with this, being on stage with skates, its really cool to be up close and personal with the people.The show is being held on real ice — there is such a thing as synthetic ice — on a surface measuring 40 by 56 feet. Skaters are accustomed to competing on NHL rinks that measure 85 by 200 feet.So the 42-year-old Stojko and his castmates, including Bourne, Violetta Afanasieva and Pete Dack, among others, have been laying down pylons to practise, marking out the smaller size of ice surface they have to work with.Its intimate, (audience members) are close, Bourne said. Were so used to having to present to all four sides. But now, you just have the audience, and thats very new when youre designing your program to fit the stage.Its that intimate setting, because were used to having to project to way up there, to 15,000 people. But everyone has a good seat in this, and we can really look into the audience, and theyll really see much more than theyd ever see in any competition or big show that youd see in an ice rink.Stojko and Bourne, who won gold with partner Victor Kraatz at the 2003 world championships with a memorable Riverdance program, said it wasnt difficult to train for the show.Both still skate on the professional circuit.We never stopped training so it just bleeds into the next show, Stojko said. The two numbers Im using here are numbers that Ive had before, one I just did in Brazil. The other one is a Christmas number I did a few years ago. Were skating almost all year round. . . Were always trying to stay in shape, and when we get here, we have a couple of days to put together the group numbers, strategically laid out.Bourne is a skating coach and choreographer. He clients include ice dancers Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., who recently won the Grand Prix Final.Shes choreographed dozens of programs for skaters this season, from all around the world.Constantly being on the ice has kept the 38-year-old lean and strong.With choreography, youre on the ice with the skater, it helps them to see, and I think you exaggerate as a choreographer or as a coach, to really make somebody understand. . . . I think that keeps me in shape, she said. As a choreographer, Im not training all the time but Im moving all the time, and dancing all the time.Bourne and Stojko said their professional skating careers take them around the world, but rarely to cities in Canada. Theyre thrilled for the opportunity to skate at home in the Mirvish Productions show. I havent performed much in Canada. A lot of my work has been in Asia. Ive been doing a lot of shows in the States, Japan, Korea, China, Bourne said. This is kind of great for Canada too.Canada has been known to be one of the best countries producing wonderful skaters but there hasnt been a lot out there as far as shows go, in Canada. So its kind of nice to be able to actually perform here where family is. Its a nice change. Curtis Granderson Jersey .This one was bigger than most.Ben Roethlisberger and LeVeon Bell came up big in a game that Pittsburgh had to win Sunday, leading the Steelers to a 42-21 drubbing of the Cincinnati Bengals that left the AFC North race wide open. Roy Halladay Jersey . The Force had two men, including former Wallabies No. 8 Ben McCalman, in the sin-bin in the dying minutes of the match, but were able to resist a late Highlanders surge to post a four-try, bonus point win. http://www.authenticbluejaysgear.com/blue-jays-roberto-alomar-jersey/ .ca. In Sundays Blackhawks-Penguins game, Pittsburgh defenceman Brooks Orpik laid a huge hit on Chicagos Jonathan Toews. Now in my view, Orpik can be clearly seen leaving his feet while delivering a moderately high hit.STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma State freshman guard Stevie Clark has been kicked off the basketball team. The school announced the move Monday before the 19th-ranked Cowboys hosted No. 16 Iowa State. Clark has been arrested twice since the start of 2014.
