LAKE PLACID -– Olympic Gold Medalist, World Champion and three-time U.S. National Champion, Dorothy Hamill will return to stars on ice.
The Stars on Ice “Now & Then” Tour will kick-off with a special performance at the Olympic Centre in Lake Placid, NY on Sunday, Dec. 30, at 7:30 p.m. One of the most beloved American sports icons, Hamill won the hearts of skating fans around the world with her dominant performance in taking Gold at the 1976 Winter Olympic Games in Innsbruck, Austria. Hamill is credited with developing a new skating move; a camel spin that turns into a sit spin, which became known as the "Hamill Camel." The bobbed hairstyle that she wore during her Olympic performance started a fad, and she quickly became "America's Sweetheart."
Joining a cast of Olympic, World and National Champion skaters on the 2012-13 Tour, Hamill will help bid a fond farewell to longtime cast member Kurt Browning, who will be giving his final U.S. tour performances.
Stars on Ice continues to be a pioneer in figure skating by offering fans the rare opportunity to witness some of the world’s most creative and cherished champions performing together in both individual and ensemble routines.
Joining Dorothy Hamill on this year’s tour is a stellar cast of world-renowned athletes, including Four-Time World Champion & Four-Time Canadian National Champion Kurt Browning; Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist Ekaterina Gordeeva (Russia); 1998 Olympic Gold Medalist Ilia Kulik (Russia); 2010 Olympic Bronze Medalist Joannie Rochette (Canada); U.S. National Champion Ryan Bradley; Two-Time European Bronze Medalists and Seven-Time British National Dance Champions Sinead & John Kerr; and Canadian National Silver Medalist Shawn Sawyer.
