Ice Skating for all ages and disciplines
Allegro Ice Dance Club is one of Auckland’s fastest growing Ice Figure Skating club and is based at the Botany Paradice Ice Skating Rink. The Allegro Ice Dance Club is affiliated to the New Zealand Ice Figure Skating Association who are in turn are affiliated to the International Skating Union.
The Allegro Ice Dance Club is an incorporated society formed in 2003 to promote the sport and artistry of ice dancing. In 2010 Auckland’s only Adult Synchronized Skating team was formed. The Allegro Ice Dance Club remained as an Auckland and Adult focused Ice Figure Skating and Synchronized skating club until 2018 when a group of young and enthusiastic synchronized skaters joined the club as a team which helped the club to embrace all disciplines of Ice Figure Skating.
The club is open to skaters of all ages from tiny tots to adults who are interested in any of the ice disciplines; Singles and Pairs Ice Figure Skating, Ice Dance and Synchronized Ice Skating.
The key aims of the Allegro Ice Dance Club are to:
- Promote all disciplines of Ice Figure Skating (Singles, Pairs, Ice Dance and Synchronized Skating)
- To help grow our club skater skills by offering development club sessions
- To support and encourage both competitive and social skaters
- To pass on information relevant to Ice Figure Skating in all disciplines to our members
- To encourage active participation of our club members in all local, regional and national championships
- To ensure our skaters adhere to the rules and regulations of our governing body, the New Zealand Ice Figure Skating Association (NZIFSA)
- To foster good relations with all NZIFSA affiliated skating clubs
To ensure we help our club skaters achieve their goals whether it be travelling to the South Island for a club, regional or national championship or for international travel, the club will endeavour to support them by offering several fundraising opportunities. Watch our Facebook page for more details and club emails.
The Allegro Ice Dance Club is run by some very enthusiastic skater parents including a number of our adult skaters. The knowledge across our team is diverse and constantly evolving.
We are very fortunate to have such a diverse team who are very willing to share ideas and information to ensure the job gets done and the club continues to grow.
The committee is there to provide help, guidance and support to both the new and not so new skaters and parents of all levels as they weave their way through the various layers of Ice Figure Skating in New Zealand and the wider world community.
