These instructions are for all Idaho IceWorld Learn to Skate participants and any Boise Figure Skating Club participants up to and including Basic 6 levels.
The 2021 Ice Show will be held on December 4, 6 p.m.* at Idaho Central Arena in downtown Boise! The show is a large-scale production and is a wonderful learning experience for skaters of all abilities and levels. Everyone is encouraged to participate! (*Date and time are subject to change. December 5, time TBD is the backup date.)
- Attend practices, photo shoot & group rehearsals. To ensure the quality of the ice show, skaters must attend practices, photo shoot and group rehearsals. Refer to the calendar included in the Ice Show Information. If your skater must miss any practices, rehearsals or the photo shoot, please email ASAP. The Show Director has the right to remove any skater who misses any of these events and registration fees will not be refunded.
All information and schedules are subject to change at the discretion of Show Director, Boise Figure Skating Club Board of Directors and / or Idaho IceWorld Management.
Measuring for Costumes
Skater’s measurements are required at the time of registration.
- We recommend that you print the Costume Measurement Worksheet to use before starting registration.
- Please measure carefully according to the instructions on the worksheet.
Key Factors in Measuring
- If your skater is still growing, remember it is three months before the show. You will have the opportunity to note if you expect a growth spurt before December.
- It is much easier to alter a costume that is too big than try to fix a costume that is too small.
- We cannot return costumes for a different size. It takes 10-12 weeks to receive costumes.
- Skaters are responsible for accurate measurements.
- Costumes will be ordered according to the measurements you provide.
- If you have questions about your measurements, please email.
- You will be notified when your costume has been finalized and what your cost will be. Costume fees must be paid in full within 14 days of notification.
- Registration will not be complete, and your costume will not be ordered without all measurements filled in on the registration form.
- Tights and other accessories may be required for some costumes. The costs for these items are not included in the costume fee. You will be notified as to what kind of tights and/or accessories are required as soon as costume information is finalized.
- Costume pick-up will take place during practice after costumes arrive, usually early October. You will be notified via email as to when your skater’s costume will be available for pick-up. You must try on your costume immediately and notify us via email or call Jackie Woodland 208-608-7718 if there are any fitting issues.
- Skaters are responsible for any costume size alterations that may be required.
- Changes to the design of a costume will be made only at the direction of the Costume Mistress and Show Director.
- All costumes and accessories must be worn as directed by the Costume Mistress and Show Director.
The following information is available on the Costume Measurement Worksheet. We recommend that you print this worksheet to use before starting the registration process.
Measuring for your costume
- Use a cloth or plastic (flexible) measuring tape.
- It is best if skater does not measure him or herself
- The skater should be wearing a leotard, swimsuit or undergarments, not street clothes.
- Girth measurements are usually the deciding factor when there are conflicting measurements.
- Please remember skaters and/or parents are responsible for measuring accurately.
- If you have questions, email and wait for clarification prior to completing the form.
Chest: With arms relaxed down at sides, measure around the fullest part of the chest, keeping tape measure parallel to the floor.
Waist: Measure around the natural waistline, the narrowest part of the upper body (not over shirt or pants)
Hips: Measure around fullest part of the lower body, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor.
Girth: Measure from the center of one shoulder, down the front through crotch and back to starting point. This is the most important measurement in determining costume size.
