Under the Big Top: Canoe Valley figure skating carnival

The Canoe Valley Skating Club Carnival themed ‘Under the Big Top’ featured many talented skaters and an amazing Vancouver based skater, Jana De Jong, but the number one star of the program was Sydnie Pelletier’s Elephant Dancer program and speech to her mother, Coach Sharonrose Shalla, on her last performance in high school. Sydnie’s expression of gratitude for her mother had announcer Lynn Lawless and many more in tears. Pelletier began her performance with her mother who has been coach of the figure skating club for 29 years. /ANDRU MCCRACKEN
