Arrive an hour early to see the pre-show. If you buy those circus booklets the children can take them around and the performers will sign them. Bring your own sharpie just in case :)

The parking across from the street from SAP center is also 15 dollars. I would recommend just parking in the lot and saving yourself a long walk across a busy street with circus protesters trying to scare the children.

They were good seats. I've been going to see stars on ice for many years. Though the present skaters are excellent, I miss the old stars. The current ones don't have the personality that shines out to the audience as the past stars (Scott...continued

Totally wonderful. We know little about skating but were completely enthralled. The skaters were great performers, not just technical skaters.

Description

About the performers

Sasha Cohen

Olympic Silver Medalist
p. Residence: Laguna Niguel, CA

Birthdate: October 26, 1984

Birthplace: Westwood, CA

A U.S. Championship and an Olympic Silver Medal – quite a season for America’s newest sweetheart – Sasha Cohen.

Sasha’s success in 2006 followed another successful skating season in 2005, when she won Silver medals at the World Figure Skating Championships and the State Farm U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Sasha also ended the 2003-2004 season with Silver medals at the World Championships and U.S. Championships. She has earned victories over every competitor who has medaled in previous Olympic competition and who remain eligible.

Sasha has returned to California and is in training with her former coach, John Nicks, at the Aliso Viejo Ice Palace.

Ilia Kulik

Olympic Champion

Residence: California

Birthdate: May 23, 1977

Birthplace: Moscow, Russia

When 20-year-old Ilia Kulik stood at the top of the Olympic podium in Nagano, Japan in February 1998, he was only the second man in figure skating singles history to achieve a Gold Medal on his first trip to the Winter Games (the first being the United States’ Dick Button in 1948).

In Nagano Ilia placed first with both his short and long programs, “Revolutions” and “Rhapsody in Blue.” “Rhapsody in Blue,” one of the most ambitious Olympic programs ever successfully skated, included a flawlessly executed quadruple toe loop, 8 triple jumps, intricate footwork, multiple spins and sweeping connective choreography. In total, Ilia achieved an “overpowering” Olympic performance according to Time magazine.

Ilia’s “big dream” as he has called it, started when he was five-years-old in his hometown, Moscow. His mother took him to a children’s skating class to see if skating might be his sport. After watching her son fall and fall again at his first try on skates, Mrs. Kulik thought they should try out another sport right away. She was surprised to hear the teacher ask her to bring Ilia back.

“But why? He keeps falling.”

“Yes,” said the teacher, “but he keeps getting up.”*

Todd Eldredge *

World Champion

Residence: Rochester Hills, MI

Birthdate: August 28, 1971

Birthplace: Chatham, MA

Todd Eldredge is one of the most highly-decorated American men’s skaters of the past 40 years. His six U.S. titles, six World Championship medals and numerous other international achievements are testament to his skill, consistency and work ethic.

At his final competition as an eligible competitor, the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Eldredge was one of eight U.S. athletes selected to carry the American flag recovered from the World Trade Center rubble into the Opening Ceremonies. He refers to the experience as “an unbelievable honor.”

It was a fitting conclusion for someone twice named Athlete of the Month by the United States Olympic Committee. His competitive career spanned more than a decade, during which time he overcame a serious back injury. Eldredge, who began skating at the age of 5, won his first U.S. title in 1990 at age 18. He defended the title in 1991 and made his first appearance on the World podium that year. For the next three seasons he struggled with injury. His return to the top step of the U.S. podium in 1995 marked the first time a skater reclaimed the title after a three-year absence from the podium.
