For more than a decade, the Florida Skating Academy's Holiday Roller Skating Show has been one of the highlights of the season. The fast-paced, colorful two-hour show has featured world and national champion skaters of all ages. It's no surprise that tickets go quickly, so advance purchase is highly recommended. This year's show at 2 p.m. Dec. 12 at Spinnations Skating Center in Port Richey promises to be as exciting as previous ones. "The (show) will feature U.S. competitors just returning from the World Championships in Portugal," said Angela Serini, publicist for the organization.

Topping the 20-act show will be senior world-class pairs skaters Siobhan Boismier of New Port Richey and Eric Hadley of Melbourne; world-class singles skater John Burchfield; Junior World figure skater Erica Sheley; and national champions Tabitha Clark, Meghan Boyce, and Lorenzo and Francesca Bertoglio.

Others in the show are the 11-member "Golden Rollers" and the "Kids" Class, Bronze Class and Florida Skating Academy senior club members.

The skaters will perform to songs from the 1930s through the present, such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy; Anchors Aweigh; Sing, Sing, Sing; At Last; Boogie Shoes; Shake Your Groove Thing and Frosty the Snowman.

Doors will open at 1 p.m. for people who have purchased tickets in advance. Tickets can be purchased at the door, if available, at 1:45 p.m. The show starts at 2 p.m.
