Featuring the youngest CanSkate graduates, the Rising Stars program, and the Club’s touring competitors, the show did all the takes on Disney. Toe-tapping hit songs from favourites such as Frozen, The Incredibles, Snow White, Zootopia, and the Mickey Mouse March made for for a rousing afternoon at the rink.
