Article on Dorothy Hamill's Skating Camp

Here is a Baltimore Sun article on the lovely Dorothy Hamill and her skating camp for adults. It sounds like fun! Wish I had $4,800 lying around....

The article also mentions Hamill's upcoming wedding to John MacColl, and her mentorship of Rachael Flatt, as well as an upcoming project:

Before she leaves Nantucket to return to Baltimore, Hamill and Murphy will work on the choreography for "Kaleidoscope on Ice" – a holiday TV special.

The show will feature a collaboration between elite figure skaters and Grammy Award-winning performers to address issues surrounding women and cancer. Scott Hamilton, 1980 Olympic gold medalist and cancer survivor, will join Hamill, who will skate to the music of fellow cancer survivor Olivia Newton-John and music producer David Foster. Also performing will be Olympic champion Kristi Yamaguchi, Olympic silver medalist Nancy Kerrigan, former national champion Johnny Weir and Flatt.

The live event and taping will take place at the Verizon Center in Washington at 7 p.m., on Nov. 16. The 90-minute show will be broadcast on the Fox network on Thanksgiving Day at 4 p.m., following the football game. Tickets for the event can be purchased by calling (202) 397-SEAT or visiting www.verizoncenter.com.
